Economic, social and cultural rights are finally coming of age. This book brings together all essential documents, materials, and case law relating to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) - one of the most important human rights instruments in international law - and its Optional Protocol. This book presents extracts from primary materials alongside critical commentary and analysis, placing the documents in their wider context and situating economic, social, and cultural rights within the broader human rights framework.There is increasing interest internationally, regionally, and in domestic legal systems in the protection of economic, social, and cultural rights. The Optional Protocol of 2008 allows for individual communications to be made to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights after its entry into force in 2013. At the regional level, socio-economic rights are well embedded in human rights systems in Europe, Africa and the Americas. At the national level, constitutions and courts have increasingly regarded socio-economic rights as justiciable, narrowing the traditional divide with civil and political rights. This book contextualises these developments in the context of the ICESCR. It provides detailed analysis of the ICESCR structured around its articles, drawing on national as well as international case law and materials, and containing all of the key primary materials in its extensive appendices. This book is indispensible for the judiciary, human rights practitioners, government legal advisers and agencies, national human rights institutions, international organisations, regional human rights bodies, NGOs and human rights activists, academics, and students alike.

In Staaten, die gerade einen bewaffneten Konflikt uberstanden haben, ist das Risiko eines neuerlichen Gewaltausbruches meist hoch. Post-Konflikt-Staaten stellen daher nicht nur eine potentielle Bedrohung fur deren Bevolkerung dar, sondern konnen auch den internationalen Frieden gefahrden. Haufig versuchen deshalb andere Staaten oder die Vereinten Nationen diese Staaten mit friedenskonsolidierenden Massnahmen zu unterstutzen. Die Responsibility to Rebuild ist ein Teilbereich des weiteren Konzeptes der Responsibility to Protect. Sie fordert von der internationalen Gemeinschaft Unterstutzung beim Wiederaufbau von Post-Konflikt-Staaten ein, um zukunftige Menschenrechtsverletzungen zu vermeiden. Simon Hummrich-Welt untersucht den Anwendungsbereich der Responsibility to Rebuild innerhalb des Schutzverantwortungskonzeptes, zeigt, inwieweit eine solche Wiederaufbauverantwortung bereits Teil des geltenden Volkerrechtes ist, und stellt Entwicklungsperspektiven der Responsibility to Rebuild dar.

States reject inequality when they choose to ratify the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), but to date the ICESCR has not yet figured prominently in the policy calculus behind States' international economic decisions. This book responds to the modern challenge of operationalizing the ICESCR, particularly in the context of States' decisions within international trade, finance, and investment. Differentiating between public policy mechanisms and institutional functional mandates in the international trade, finance, and investment systems, this book shows legal and policy gateways for States to feasibly translate their fundamental duties to respect, protect, and fulfil economic, social and cultural rights into their trade, finance, and investment commitments, agreements, and contracts. It approaches the problem of harmonizing social protection objectives under the ICESCR with a State's international economic treaty obligations, from the designing and interpreting international treaty texts, up to the institutional monitoring and empirical analysis of ICESCR compliance. In examining public policy options, the book takes into account around five decades of States' implementation of social protection commitments under the ICESCR; its normative evolution through the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the Committee's expanded fact-finding and adjudicative competences under the Optional Protocol to the ICESCR; as well as the critical, dialectical, and deliberative roles of diverse functional interpretive communities within international trade, finance, and investment law. Ultimately, the book shoes how States' ICESCR commitments operate as the normative foundation of their trade, finance, and investment decisions.

Now in its third edition, this book is the authoritative text on one of the world's most important human rights treaties, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The Covenant is of universal relevance. Adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1966 and in force from 1976, it commits the signatories and parties to respect the civil and political freedoms and rights of individuals. Monitored by the UN Human Rights Committee, the Covenant ratified by the majority of UN member states. The book meticulously extracts and analyzes the jurisprudence over nearly forty years of the UN Human Rights Committee, on each of the various ICCPR rights, including the right to life, the right to freedom from torture, the right of freedom of religion, the right of freedom of expression, and the right to privacy, as well as admissibility criteria under the First Optional Protocol. Key miscellaneous issues, such as reservations, derogations, and denunciations, are also thoroughly assessed. Comprehensively indexed and cross-referenced, this book offers elegant and straight-forward access to the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee and other UN human rights treaty bodies. Presented in a clear and illuminating manner, it will be of use to the judiciary, human rights practitioners, human rights activists, government institutions, academics, and students alike.

Sph Ren Der Gerechtigkeit

Die wissenschaftliche Gerechtigkeitsdebatte, jahrelang dominiert von John Rawls'”Theorie der Gerechtigkeit“, erhielt 1983 durch Michael Walzer eine bedeutende Wendung. In Abgrenzung von Rawls und anderen Gerechtigkeitstheoretikern entwickelte Walzer in seinem inzwischen klassisch gewordenen Werk seine Vision einer”komplexen Gleichheit“. Er geht davon aus, dass wahre Gerechtigkeit nicht durch einen wörtlich verstandenen Gleichheitsbegriff verwirklicht werden kann: Vielmehr verlangen verschiedene wichtige Güter - Reichtum, Macht, Arbeit, Liebe - auch verschiedene Modi der Verteilung. Walzer setzt sich nachdrücklich für einen neuen pluralistischen Gleichheitsbegriff ein, der bis heute nichts an Aktualität verloren hat.

Kommunale Governance

Die rechtswissenschaftliche Analyse begreift Stadte bislang uberwiegend als rein nationalen Regelungsgegenstand. Demgegenuber stehen Entwicklungen wie die Verabschiedung spezieller UN-Deklarationen zu Stadten oder die durch die Weltbank initiierte und angeleitete Privatisierung der kommunalen Daseinsvorsorge in zahlreichen Schwellen- und Entwicklungslandern. Dies offnet den Blick fur einen volkerrechtlichen Zugriff auf das Thema "Stadt." Als programmatische Konzepte zur Stadtentwicklung normieren die Weltbank oder das UN-Siedlungsprogramm UN-Habitat in Stadtstrategien Prinzipien wie Partizipation, Dezentralisierung, Privatisierung oder Good Urban Governance. Im Zentrum der Arbeit steht neben der exemplarischen Analyse und einer ideologiekritischen Lesart die dogmatisch schwierige Einordnung dieser internationalen Stadtstrategien als Volkerrecht.
