In a world riven by poverty and inequality, CESR asks why denials and violations of economic and social often are treated with less urgency than violations of civil and political rights.  We believe in holding governments - and non-state actors - accountable for denials and violations of these rights.

These issues highlight our work to protect and promote specific economic and social rights. In the Poverty & Inequality section, for example, we address global policy issues that affect the realization of all economic and social rights.
