Access to justice for all human rights

The time has come to ensure that people denied their economic, social and cultural rights, in particular those living in poverty, are able to access justice.

The NGO Coalition for an Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights reiterates its call on States to become party to this Protocol.

As a member of the NGO Coalition, the ICJ joins the call and asks States to take the opportunity of the second anniversary of the adoption of the Optional Protocol by the UN General Assembly to ratify this new instrument.
