This chapter begins with the history of the drafting of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), it sets out some of the core conceptual debates about economic, social, and cultural rights (ESC rights), including their justiciability and the nature of the relevant legal obligations. It then discusses the three main themes of the book: the structure and scope of obligations under the ICESCR; regional and comparative understandings of ESC rights; and applications of these rights. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
