This chapter explores the issue of extra-territoriality and its relations to economic, social, and cultural rights (ESC rights). The discussion of extra-territoriality and ESC rights is placed in the context of the Arendt's critique of the ‘Rights of Man’ as developed in the work of Agamben and Balibar. It argues that Arendt's warning that the advancement of human rights might justify processes of exclusion and dispossession at precisely the same moment at which it opposes them, retains considerable force for the contemporary ESC rights project, particularly when the latter is framed in territorial terms.
