Optional Protocol to the ICESCR Working Sessions-ISM Kenya

International Strategy Meeting on ESCR Working Session

ESCR-Net has worked for many years in support of the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and now works as part of the Steering Committee of the NGO Coalition for an Optional Protocol.  This Coalition leads the OP-ICESCR Now! Campaign and has developed the agenda for this area of work.   Its main goal is to foster future collective action among participants in support of this mechanism which will allow victims of ESCR violations to seek justice within the UN System. The sessions offered members of the Network an opportunity to identify spaces for collective action and strategies to support this mechanism.
