Equal Rights Trust guide to Economic and Social Rights in the Courtroom

On 10 December 2014, Human Rights Day, the Equal Rights Trust launched Economic and Social Rights in the Courtroom: A Litigator’s Guide to Using Equality and Non-Discrimination Strategies to Advance Economic and Social Rights, at Matrix Chambers in London with Sir Bob Hepple QC.

The Guide identifies equality and non-discrimination strategies that NGOs, lawyers and activists may employ in seeking to advance economic and social rights (ESRs) before courts. It is also accompanied by a Compendium of useful cases in which equality and non-discrimination concepts and approaches have been employed to advance ESRs.
