PHRGE Forum: Considering the Impact: Shaping Documentation and Advocacy Efforts for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

Wednesday, February 12 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Dockser Hall, 230

The documentation of civil and political (CP) rights violations, particularly of acts of torture has typically been accompanied by the consideration of their effects on peoples’ lives. The documentation of this stress impact was highly critical in advocacy efforts to build condemnation of such violations. Given the successes around broadcasting the sequelae of torture and other CP violations, this article will explore whether the consideration of the stress impact of economic, social and cultural (ESC) violations could aid as an ancillary advocacy tactic. Such considerations may serve to illustrate the gravity of ESC rights violations, compel political will and augment calls for social justice.
