Book on Extraterritorial Scope of Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights published
The recently published book Global Justice, State Duties: The Extraterritorial Scope of Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in International Law (CUP 2013) contains several chapters dealing with questions of shared responsibility. The book is edited by Malcolm Langford, Wouter Vandenhole, Martin Scheinin and Willem van Genugten.
This book asks the question if states possess extraterritorial obligations under existing international human rights law to respect and ensure economic, social and cultural rights and how far those duties extend. Issues that are addressed in the book include jurisdiction, causation, division of responsibility, remedies and accountability.
