THE IRISH CONSTITUTION: GOVERNANCE AND VALUES, Oran Doyle, Eoin Carolan, eds., Dublin: Round Hall Press, 2008
This paper examines the approach of the Irish courts to social and economic rights, and proposes using the equality doctrine to provide indirect protection for these rights. The papers draws on comparative material from Canada, South Africa, the US and the European convention on Human Rights to see how an equality doctrine might be used to protect social and economic rights.
