Publications on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

HURICAP has published several publications on ESC rights. The original publications were the Haki Zetu series, comprised of a main book and accompanying booklets, which provide a practical toolkit on economic, social and cultural rights to support local activists and development workers using a rights-based approach to tackle economic and social problems.

The newer publication, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in Practice – Handbook for Civil Society Organizations and Human Rights Defenders, was developed with a focus on the Middle East and North Africa. It introduces its users to a range of concepts, standards, and planning tools to support and enhance their abilities to demand the realization of economic, social and cultural rights.



Ukweli: Investigating Human Rights Violations

The Ukweli series were developed to be used to monitor, document and report human rights violations. These publications provide detailed guidance to human rights activists and organizations on conducting accurate and high-quality investigations into possible human rights violations. Ukweli is a Swahili word for ‘finding the truth.’
