HUMAN RIGHTS TALK “Social Rights: Do they belong in the Constitution?”
Tuesday, 13 June 2023, 7:00 p.m.
Vienna School of International Studies, Favoritenstraße 15a, 1040 Vienna
A distinguished panel will discuss the significance of social rights.
Social (human) rights include, amongst others, the rights to work, health and housing. Although they are enshrined in international law in the European Social Charter, they still do not enjoy the same status as civil and political rights. Only few European countries have fully ratified the Charter to date. Austria, too, has not yet signed around a quarter of the provisions it contains. But what are social rights anyway? What role do they play in times of global crisis? And why is it that in Austria, unlike in many other countries, they have not yet been incorporated into the constitution? A distinguished panel will discuss the significance of social rights.
