What is included with this book?


This volume focuses on economic, social and cultural rights within the competence of UNESCO. These include the right to education, right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications and the right to take part in cultural life. The work provides a combination of insight on the content, scope of application and corresponding State obligations of these rights, based on the international human rights legal framework, and examinations of specific aspects relating to their implementation.This book illuminates an area of rights study that has hitherto been neglected. It will be a valuable resource for all those interested in human rights generally.
