A social contract for the twenty-first century: socio-economic rights and wealthier democracies

Abstract:

With the reluctance by many in the Anglo-American world to countenance an incorporation of socio-economic rights into justiciable Bills of Rights, this policy brief explores the potential of the social contract as a complementary approach to the positivist arguments of international human rights law. Social contract theory has evolved in the twenty-first century into a progressive theory that encompasses socio-economic rights.
