ESR Review No. 3 of 2015 is now available!

This issue of the ESR Review includes three feature articles that discuss various areas of socio-economic rights. Enoch MacDonnell Chilemba analyses various incidents of evictions that took place in South Africa in 2014. There were also court challenges, applications and decisions relating to evictions. The article highlights issues relating to the legality and frequency of evictions.

Fola Adeleke and Rachel Ward highlight the interrelatedness of human rights norms and the right of access to information. They argue that it is important to view access to information as an enabling condition for other rights, particularly socio-economic rights and development.

Ebenezer Durojaye provides a commentary on the recent decision by the Committee on International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) in IDG v Spain (Communication No. 2/2014). This is the CESCR’s first decision after the entry into force of the Optional Protocol to the Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in May 2013. The author highlights the positive aspects of this decision as well as its shortcomings.
