The enforcement of human rights in general, and economic, social and cultural rights in particular, depends to a great extent on legal provisions protecting these rights contained in international and regional treaties, as well as in national constitutions and laws. Since 1945, a large number of human rights treaties were adopted both at regional and international levels. The book explores the various international and regional human rights instruments available for the enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. The book traces the relationship of the fundamental rights and the directive principles of state policy in India. The book also traces the jurisprudence developed by the Indian judiciary in the field of economic, social and cultural rights. It concludes that after the Vienna declaration civil and political and economic, social, and cultural rights are interdependent, indivisible and interrelated. This book will be extremely helpful to the academicians, NGOs, students and lawyers as well as other institutions dealing with international law and human rights.
