Abstract

This document is a review of a selection of existing guidance and case studies on economic and social rights (ESR) budget analysis. While the initial purpose of the document was to inform the development of the QUB Budget Analysis project’s work, it also serves as an overview of previous work in the field for all those interested in ESR budget analysis. Amongst other things, the report authors seek to draw out lessons, based on the examples considered, for those seeking to carry out such budget analysis.

Keywords: Socio-Economic Rights, Economic and Social Rights, Welfare Rights, Budgets, Public Finance, ICESCR, International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights, Housing, Right to Adequate Housing
