Aspects of SOCIO-ECONOMIC RIGHTS in Botswana
This book offers the readers with a nuanced discussion on the promotion, protection, and fulfilment of aspects of economic, social, and cultural rights in Botswana. Borrowing from lessons from other jurisdictions, international and regional standards, contributors to this book highlight the extent to which the country’s policy, legal and constitutional framework has provided for the enjoyment of these rights. With specific cases studies on the right to education, the right to the environment, the right to water, the right to adequate housing and social security, the book discusses the country’s policy, legal and constitutional framework relating to these rights in Botswana. The book also discusses the justiciability of economic, social, and cultural rights in Botswana. To that end, the book offers an insight into the nature and extent of the enjoyment of these rights in a jurisdiction where they are neither constitutionally protected nor spelt out as directive principles of state policy.
