Item description for Economic Social and Cultural Rights by Asbjorn Eide...
The Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, adopted in the World Conference on Human Rights in June 1993, reaffirmed the indivisible and interdependent nature of all human rights. Yet, the category of economic, social and cultural rights remains a subject of debate and controversy.
The highly successful first edition of this book was the first comprehensive textbook on internationally recognized economic, social and cultural rights. While focusing on this category of rights, it also analysed their relationships to other human rights, civil and political rights in particular.
This second, revised edition updates and revises the first, and supplements it with a number of new chapters. These include chapters on the domestic realization of economic and social rights, on the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, on economic and social rights in the European Union as well as on multinational enterprises and economic, social and cultural rights. Furthermore, a number of chapters have been written by new authors, such as the chapters on the right to health, on human rights and protection of the environment, on women and on international development finance institutions.
