Focus

The Social Rights Group has been founded in the framework of the VIII Congress of IACL. Its main goal is to develop a network and a forum for constitutionalists interested in social rights from countries throughout the world. The principal actual activity of the group is the promotion of a Ford funded project on social rights with a dual objective: First, to promote research and awareness on economic and social rights among international and constitutional law professionals. Second, to advocate for the adoption and implementation of the Optional Protocol (ICESCR-OP) to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Blog

The Group is operating a blog (http://iaclsocialrights.blogspot.com/), which presents its activities and hosts a comparative Case Law “library” of representative judgments of Constitutional Courts of various jurisdictions. It comprises two regional networks, an African and a South American one, which are organizing in the immediate future two workshops, one in Lagos, Nigeria, this May and one in San Juan, Argentina, in April.
