This chapter reviews the operation of the collective complaints system and assesses its future potential. It describes the genesis of the system and then goes on to explain how complaints are made and dealt with, before offering some thoughts about the utility and effectiveness of the system and its future prospects. In order to place the system in a general human rights context, the chapter begins by discussing the question of the justiciability of economic and social rights. It then gives an overview of mechanisms for seeking to ensure compliance by states with their obligations under other treaties concerned with such rights.
