The Revised European Social Charter by Karin Lukas, Head of Programme Line and Senior Researcher at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights as well as President of the European Committee of Social Rights.
This detailed Commentary explores the boundaries of social rights at a European level through analysis of the most comprehensive regional document on social rights, the Revised European Social Charter (RESC). The Commentary considers the treaty as the counterpart of the European Convention on Human Rights and focuses primarily on the rich jurisprudence developed by the Charter’s monitoring body, the European Committee of Social Rights (ECSR).
