Now also available online, this popular title features a comprehensive analysis of the socio-economic rights jurisprudence of the newly democratic South Africa, including relevant international and comparative law. It deals with key concepts in socio-economic rights such as separation of powers and reasonableness review, with perspectives from political philosophy and democratic theory as well as the role of socio-economic rights in private law and appropriate remedies for socio-economic rights violations. Further, it proposes how the judicial interpretation and enforcement of socio-economic rights can be developed to be more responsive to the conditions of systemic poverty and inequality characterising South African society.
