The report looks at the state of socio-economic rights in Great Britain. 

It comes two years after the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights set out its recommendations on how to improve social and economic rights for people across the UK.

We aim to highlight where a lack of progress has been made to improve social and economic rights for people in the UK, in areas including:

  • social security
  • legal aid
  • work  

The report forms part of our work on monitoring the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), a United Nations human rights treaty.
