Responses to States’ concerns with regard to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the proposed Optional Protocol
The ICJ has authored a series of user friendly fact sheets to further clarify the legal content of economic, social and cultural rights and to emphasise the value of an Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
The responses are grouped in five sections:
- ICESCR and Optional Protocol Working Group Considerations
- Specific ICESCR and Optional Protocol Concerns
- State Obligations under the Proposed Optional Protocol
- Remedies for ICESCR Violations
