Spain: Submission to UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR)

This joint submission with Observatori DESC seeks to examine the current state of enjoyment of several economic and social rights in Spain in light of  its future appearance before the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

The submission highlights selected areas of concern under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights which have not been or are inadequately addressed in Spain´s official report to the Committee.

The submission focuses particularly on those rights most affected by the economic crisis and the country´s responses to it. It also highlights disparities in the enjoyment of economic and social rights which raise questions regarding the Spain´s compliance with its obligation of non-discrimination.
