About this book


This book explores two main themes. First, the claim that these welfare, education, health and equality can be accorded the status of rights. Second, and relatedly, the issue of whether they are justiciable, that is, can they be the subject of adjudication and enforcement through traditional legal mechanisms? This book provides a timely and wide-ranging exploration of these topical and controversial issues.
