Abstract:     
Realizing Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights: Communities, Courts, and the Academy documents the proceedings of a groundbreaking expert consultation held at Northeastern University School of Law under the auspices of the Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy. The report draws on the deliberations of more than 60 leading diplomats, academics, jurists, legal practitioners, and activists from a variety of legal disciplines. Participants discussed the current state of economic, social, and cultural rights and the impact of globalization in small working groups as well as in plenary session. Contributors such as Brook K. Baker, Margaret Burnham, Dan Danielsen, Martha Davis, Rashmi Dyal-Chand, Karl Klare, Hope Lewis, Wendy Parmet, James Rowan, and Margaret Woo analyzed and summarized the discussions. Key themes addressed are the justiciability of socio-economic rights in U.S. and South African courts, public health strategies and the right to health, economic, social, and cultural rights and development, prospects for U.S.-focused international human rights strategies, as well as ways to increase focus on economic, social, and cultural rights in legal education.
