Human rights are at the heart of UNESCO's work in the fields of education, science and culture.
Conceived from an international human rights legal framework, Human Rights in Education, Science and Culture: Legal Developments and Challenges combines insights into the content, scope of application and corresponding state obligations of these rights with analyses of issues relating to their implementation. The volume begins by presenting the principles of the indivisibility, interrelatedness and interdependence of all human rights.
It then turns to questions related to economic, social and cultural rights, including their justiciability, their application between private parties and the development of indicators for measuring their implementation.
Finally, it addresses the right to education, the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications, and the right to take part in cultural life - the content and scope of application of the latter two rights being especially in need of further elucidation. Dedicated to the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this volume should be an invaluable resource for all those working in the area of human rights.
