The Monitoring Working Group builds persuasive evidence for ESCR advocacy, for the purpose of ensuring that States and other key actors act in accordance with their human rights obligations. It does so by facilitating mutual learning and knowledge-sharing, deepening critical analysis and coordinating collective action to advance the realization of human rights in practice.
