The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR): Report to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights is a comprehensive report discussing the future implementation of CESCR guidance in Scotland.
'This report seeks to look at how the UK is fundamentally failing to implement the ICESCR, whilst focusing in on marginalised experiences to showcase wider gaps where affirmative action is needed to address inequality. Specifically, as a joint report from Scottish organisations, this report will use primarily devolved Scottish examples to highlight where people’s economic, social, and cultural rights are not being respected by government. '
