This chapter examines the development of the protection of economic, social, and cultural rights (ESC rights) in the Inter-American System. It reviews the substantive recognition granted to ESC rights by Organization of American States (OAS) member states followed by an account of the tools available for monitoring and assessing compliance with ESC rights. Strategies so far employed towards the judicial and quasi-judicial protection of ESC rights are addressed in the final section of the chapter.
