Abstract:

Human rights are an interconnected set of civil, political, social, economic, and cultural rights. Unfortunately, the current discourse on human rights as well as  practices of  governments and national and international human rights institutions have emphasized on civil and political rights and have taken on economic, social and cultural rights.

This book is an attempt at wisely addressing the evolution and development of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966) as the most comprehensive international instrument relevant to this area of human rights. 
The author while addressing the concerns on economic, social and cultural rights,  explains some of the key issues and rely on the procedure of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in this regard.

Matthew C R. Caryon is a professor of international law at the School of Oriental and

African Studies (SOAS).
