Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the international covenant on economic, social and cultural rights adopted by the general assembly of the United Nations on 16 December 1966. It describes 31 articles agreed by the States Parties. The States Parties agree upon the articles by considering that, in accordance with the principles proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. The States Parties also recognize that these rights derive from the inherent dignity of the human person and realize that the individual, having duties to other individuals and to the community to which he belongs, is under a responsibility to strive for the promotion and observance of rights recognized in the covenant.
