Towards binding economic, social and cultural rights obligations of non-state actors in international and domestic law: a critical survey of emerging norms.

by Chirwa, Danwood Mzikenge

Abstract (Summary)
This study argued that the issue of non-state actors requires a comprehensive response that includes the recognition of both non-binding and binding human rights obligations of these actors. It examined critically the emerging norms on voluntary obligations, state responsibility, and direct responsibility of these actors with regard to human rights at both international and domestic levels.
