EVENT: UCL – Poverty and Rights: Can and Should the Law Promote Socio-Economic Equality?

Posted May 29th, 2013 in Forthcoming events by sally

“In these times of austerity, the impact of public spending cuts on the most disadvantaged is in the spotlight. With research suggesting that the poor are disproportionately negatively impacted by spending cuts, the question of whether the law should step in on their behalf to challenge public spending decisions is at the fore. The longstanding divide between those who think that it is not the place of the law to redistribute resources and those who think socio-economic rights cannot be fully realised without such redistribution, is reignited.”
