SECTION27 collaborated with the Institute for Economic Justice and the Centre for Economic and Social Rights on a submission to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. The submission focused on government’s obligation to utilise the ‘maximum of its available resources’ towards the realisation of socio-economic rights, looking at how government generates, allocates and spends public money. We submitted evidence to show that the government’s austerity policy is limiting the availability of resources for health care and education, with damaging impacts for the delivery of these functions, while alternative measures for raising sufficient resources are available but are not being sufficiently explored.
