Title: Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in New Zealand: Their Current Legal Status and the Need for Change
Authors: Opie, Josselin Brian
Advisor: Macklem, Patrick
Department: Law
Keywords: Economic, social and cultural rights, legal status in New Zealand, New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990, International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
Issue Date: 1-Jan-2011
Abstract: In this thesis I examine the status of the rights recognised in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in New Zealand‘s domestic law. I contrast that status with the constitutional guarantees that Brazil, South Africa and Finland provide for these rights, and critique the principal objections made in New Zealand and elsewhere against them. I argue that greater domestic legal protection of economic, social and cultural rights is necessary and propose that they be incorporated into the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990.
