This book, in addition to showing to what extent social rights rulings are implemented in the world, also studies causal factors and strategies that have shown practical utility.
The maturation of jurisprudence on socio-economic rights in several jurisdictions naturally raises questions about its effectiveness. This book is the first comparative and interdisciplinary study that analyzes in detail the specific issue of compliance. In addition to showing to what extent the rulings on rights are implemented in the world, it also studies causal factors and strategies that have shown practical utility. We hope that it offers a valuable resource for academics and practitioners when it comes to thinking about the dynamics of compliance and addressing the phenomenon of non-compliance.
The origins of the book date back to a meeting organized by the human rights network International Network for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR-Net), together with our respective institutions: the University of Oslo, the Center for the Study of Law, Justice and Society (Dejusticia) and the University of Lanús. The conference was held in Bogotá on May 2010, thanks to the generous support of the Ford Foundation. Many of the papers presented there are part of the chapters of this text.
