Economic, social and cultural rights

Securing a livelihood, fair working conditions, social security and freedom of association, education, health
Economic, social and cultural rights encompass rights to secure a livelihood, such as the right to food and suitable accommodation, as well as guarantees for fair working conditions, the right to social security and to organize in trade unions. The right to education is fundamental. As well as being a human right per se, education is also a necessary precondition for the exercise of other human rights. Among other things, the right to health means that the state must respect the right of every individual to sexual self-determination and ensure discrimination-free access to healthcare.
