International human rights law recognizes a distinction between political and civil rights on the one hand, and economic, social, and cultural rights on the other. This chapter deals with rights classified as economic, social, and cultural. Its principal purpose is to explore the nature of such ‘rights’ and to determine how the international community seeks to ‘protect’ them. It puts forth a concept of international social welfare law and illustrates that concept with several concrete examples. Teaching suggestions, syllabus, and a bibliographies are provided at the end of the chapter.
