10:00 - 13:00 CEST and 16:00 - 19:00 CEST

This online briefing will aim to provide parliamentarians with a deeper understanding of economic, social and cultural rights (ESCRs) and the related international human rights norms and standards; and to explore the implication of ESCRs for legislation and policy making; as well as to discuss the role of parliament in promoting and protecting ESCRs. It will also aim to provide information on the work of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) to support States, including their legislative, executive and judiciary.
