Launch of The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: Commentary, Cases, and Materials

The International Service for Human Rights, Australian Permanent Mission to the United Nations in Geneva, and the Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights hosted at the United Nations in Geneva a lunchtime reception and launch of The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: Commentary, Cases, and Materials by Ben Saul, David Kinley, and Jaqueline Mowbray (Oxford University Press, 2014)

Economic, social and cultural rights have come of age.  This book brings together all essential documents, materials, and case law relating to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and its Optional Protocol.  It presents extracts from primary materials alongside critical commentary and analysis, placing the documents in their wider context and situating economic, social, and cultural rights within the broader human rights framework.
