Summary
The Inter-American Court of Human Rights continues to build justiciability to determine the social rights of marginalised individuals and groups in the Americas. In this engaging book, Isaac de Paz Gonza<U+00cc><U+0081>lez unveils the abilities, and the practices of the Inter-American Court's contribution to human rights policy in the Global South. This innovative book offers a thorough and complete examination of the Inter-American Court's jurisprudence over its forty years of existence, within the framework of Economic and Social Rights (ESR). The author offers a concise discussion of both the historic and landmark cases in regards to ESR, and its theoretical basis, as well as giving insight into how to further improve and protect the lives of the most vulnerable people in the Americas. This book also exposes the possibility of enforcing legal remedies for poverty and structural discrimination in order to seek social justice. Contemporary and insightful, this book will be vital reading for legal scholars and students interested in human rights more broadly, as well as social justice and social rights specialists. Judges, practitioners and policymakers will also find this book a thought-provoking read
