Conceptual, Measurement, and Policy Issues469
This edited volume offers scholarship on economic rights by leading scholars in the fields of economics, law, and political science. It analyzes the central features of economic rights: their conceptual, measurement, and policy dimensions. In its introduction, the book provides a conceptualization of economic rights based on a three-pronged definition: the right to a decent standard of living, the right to work, and the right to basic income support for people who cannot work. Subsequent chapters correct existing conceptual mistakes in the literature, provide new measurement techniques with country rankings, and analyze policy implementation at the international, regional, national, and local levels. While it forms a cohesive whole, the book is nevertheless rich in contending perspectives.

'This edited volume brings to the fore the vital concept of economic rights. ... The editors have filled the existing research gaps by not only addressing the debate on economic rights in a much more comprehensive manner, but also by providing a deeper understanding of the notion of economic rights. The articles in this volume are by knowledgeable writers, some of whom are established authorities in their respective fields. In an informative introduction, the editors lay out the issues related to economic rights and provide a systematic and comprehensive evaluation of available research on economic rights. ... I highly recommend this volume for researchers, policy makers, policy activists and students working on economic rights and social security.' Development and Change
