The role of courts in the implementation of economic, social, and cultural rights: a right to health case study

Abstract:

This policy brief sets out some of the recent case law on the right to the highest attainable standard of health and argues that this jurisprudence exposes the unnecessarily narrow construction of the social contract.

The boundaries of the social contract can be expanded to encompass not only the civil and political elements, but also the social.
