About this product
- DescriptionThis edited volume offers scholarship on ecomic rights by leading scholars in the fields of ecomics, law, and political science. It analyzes the central features of ecomic rights: their conceptual, measurement, and policy dimensions. In its introduction, the book provides a conceptualization of ecomic rights based on a three-pronged definition: the right to a decent standard of living, the right to work, and the right to basic income support for people who cant work. Subsequent chapters correct existing conceptual mistakes in the literature, provide new measurement techniques with country rankings, and analyze policy implementation at the international, regional, national, and local levels. While it forms a cohesive whole, the book is nevertheless rich in contending perspectives.
