Abstract:     
This paper addresses the question of how far the European Convention on Human Rights can be used to promote social and economic rights. The purpose of this paper is to examine just how far the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights can be pushed in the protection of social and economic rights. It looks at the direct or indirect protection offered to such social and economic rights as the right to a healthy environment, the right to earn a livelihood and the right to health care.
