Research Handbook on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights as Human Rights
Tuesday, October 20, 2020

The Research Handbook on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights as Human Rights is now available.

Edited by Daniela Ikawa, ISHR's Adjunct Assistant Professor, among others, this exciting Research Handbook combines practitioner and academic perspectives to provide a comprehensive, cutting edge analysis of economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR), as well as the connection between ESCR and other rights. Offering an authoritative analysis of standards and jurisprudence, it argues for an expansive and inclusive approach to ESCR as human rights.

The COVID Solidarity project, a map of community organizing related to COVID-19 in the US has now been launched.

As the pandemic swept across the United States in 2020, millions of Americans helped their fellow citizens deal with an unprecedented crisis. This map documents some of those efforts in a variety of different areas: mutual aid societies, medical aid, makers and distributors of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), emergency relief funds, housing, business donations, groups that provided free content, and efforts to document experiences of the pandemic.
 
This map was a class project of Prof. Lara J. Nettelfield's Human Rights in the United States course and was designed by Abigail Edwards.
