Making Economic and Social Rights Real

ESR videos

Economic and social rights is a crucial area of human rights law that has long been marginalised in the UK. This is despite the fact that the rights to housing, work, an adequate standard of living, food, social security, education, water and health are central to human survival and development. Responding to that gap, this collaboration between the University of Nottingham (led by Professor Aoife Nolan) and the Equality and Human Rights Commission of Great Britain has produced a set of publicly accessible, capacity-building tools and resources on economic and social rights.

ESRC

The videos and supporting written materials are directed towards civil society, policymakers, academics and others with a background in human rights and an interest in learning more about economic and social rights. They will act as a key resource for a wide range of national and international audiences who are seeking to improve the implementation of these rights in the UK and beyond.

This work was supported by an ESRC Impact Acceleration Account grant.
