Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
In recent weeks, openDemocracy has published a number of interesting articles discussing the concrete impact of having social and economic rights legalized/incorporated into into a nations’ constitution. What is particularly interesting about these articles is that they present what some would consider a “counter-intuitive” perspective, i.e. that legalizing these rights have little impact, and, on occasions it may even be detrimental. I don’t necessarily subscribed to this view but I think it’s important to discuss these possibilities. Here are the links to these articles
