Dr Elena Pribytkova questions global obligations to assist in the context of socio-economic rights.

This lecture will justify global obligations to assist as human rights obligations, and suggests how contemporary institutions and practices of assistance, which are insufficient, inefficient, and often violate the human rights of recipients of assistance, might be improved.

Professor Veerle Heyvaert is a Professor at the LSE Law Department and founding Editor-in-Chief of Transnational Environmental Law.
