Professor David Bilchitz explains what socio-economic rights are, how they are guaranteed in a constitutional democracy and what needs to be done to ensure effective protection and translation of these rights into material entitlements. His book Poverty and Fundamental Rights has been translated into Spanish.

David Bilchitz, Professor of Fundamental Rights and Constitutional Law at the University of Johannesburg, and Director of the South African Institute for Advanced Constitutional, Public, Human Rights and International Law and Secretary-General of the International Association of Constitutional Law
