This chapter argues that the rights to social security and to social assistance in international law can be translated into state obligations that can be effectively monitored and enforced. It begins by discussing the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and ways of monitoring and enforcing the progressive obligations in it. It introduces the concepts of social security and social assistance. State obligations are then identified by applying the tests of availability, adequacy, and accessibility. Issues relating to expenditure are considered.

Keywords:   international law, human rights, International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, state obligations, expenditure
