Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0862103835, Paperback)

Hunger, homelessness and preventable disease can no longer be treated as though they were inevitable social ills or solely the product of natural disasters - they are a human rights scandal. Violations of people's economic, social and cultural rights can no longer be ignored. This human rights primer outlines key features of economic, social and cultural rights. It highlights not only the obligations of governments within their own countries but also their international obligations, and the human rights responsibilities of international organizations and corporations. It points to the duties of states under international law to take immediate action to respect, protect and fulfill these rights. Human dignity requires respect for all human rights of all people: there can be no higher priority than the right to live with dignity.
