The principal goal of this thesaurus is to serve as a tool to introduce readers to economic, social and cultural rights, related concepts, issues, and potential violations of these rights.
Based on the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Thesaurus organises and classifies rights, terminology and corresponding potential violations pertaining to articles 1-15 of the Covenant categorically, thematically, and alphabetically.
It takes a human rights approach by cross-referencing related economic, social and cultural rights, concepts, terminology in order to reflect the interrelationships between many rights. The Categorical Index presents rights, terminology and potential violations in a structured and logical format. The Thematic Index offers many routes to identifying and locating material, and the full entries (Alphabetical Thesaurus) serve as an access point for the plethora of documents relating to economic,, social and cultural rights.
