Are socio-economic rights the same as civil and political rights? They are half-heartedly recognised.
Has the Bill of Rights been given effect? How does the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) monitor these rights?
This publication inquires into the articulation of theory and practice in the commitment to the respect, promotion and realisation of socio-economic rights in South Africa.
