The Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH) officially launched its blog today with an inaugural post by Judge Dennis Davis, one of South Africa’s leading jurists. In his post, ‘The New Politics of Socio-Economic Rights’, Judge Davis argues that the enforcement of socio-economic rights requires ‘properly structured political engagement’, challenging the traditional separation between litigation and politics. The blog provides a space to share and discuss recent developments in human rights law, policy and practice across the globe. In his welcoming post, Timothy Endicott, Dean of the Faculty of Law, expressed his support for OxHRH and the blog, noting that the challenges to understanding and protecting human rights ‘can best be met through connections that enable people to benefit from the insight and the experience of others’.
