Linking Law and Economics

Linking Law and Economics

Translating Economic and Social Human Rights Norms into Public Policy

(p.48) (p.49) Chapter 2 Linking Law and Economics
Closing the Rights Gap

William F. Felice

University of California Press

U.N. agencies have worked relentlessly to define states obligations to respect, protect, and fulfill the economic and social human rights articulated in international law. Other international institutions have worked resolutely to define appropriate state policies for economic growth and development. In his chapter, Felice argues for a clear articulation of the nexus between these legal and economic approaches to economic and social human rights fulfillment. Helpful to such an articulation is an expanded conceptualization of “global public goods.” Through an examination of both the human “right to health” and the “right to a healthy environment,” Felice demonstrates the ways in which public policy development within international organizations can be enhanced through a lens of global public goods.
