PIOVESAN, Flavia. Social, economic and cultural rights and civil and political rights.Translated byRegina de Barros Carvalho,  Jonathan Morris. Sur [online]. 2006, vol.1Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1806-6445.

This essay deals with social, economic and cultural rights and political and civil rights within the context of international law on human rights. To this end, it reviews the contemporary conception of this issue in the light of the international system of protection, evaluating its profile, its objectives, its logic and its principles, and questioning the feasibility of an integrated vision of human rights. This is followed by an evaluation of the main challenges and prospects for the implementation of these rights, claiming that facing this challenge is essential to ensure that human rights will take on their central role in the contemporary order.
