Economic Rights: Conceptual, Measurement, And Policy Issues 2005

This conference resulted in the publication of an edited volume by the same title, available from Cambridge University Press.

Scholars and policymakers are increasingly attempting to link socio-economic and classic civil and political rights in unprecedented and innovative ways. The University of Connecticut will host a conference on "Economic Rights: Conceptual, Measurement, and Policy Issues" (October 27-29, 2005) to move this new research and debate forward. The event is co-sponsored by the University of Connecticut Human Rights Institute and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, in celebration of the Dodd Center’s 10th Anniversary Celebration.
