Minimum Core Obligations: Human Rights In The Here And Now

The doctrine of the ‘minimum core’ (MCD) has in recent decades achieved prominence within international human rights law (IHRL) and practice. This enhanced profile is largely attributable to the activities of the United Nation’s Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (henceforth, ‘the Committee’). As this origin indicates, the MCD has been articulated in relation to the sub-set of human rights, usually denominated as ‘economic, social and cultural rights’, that are set out in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (henceforth, ‘the Covenant’). 1 In addition, some regional and domestic legal regimes, notably in Africa and South America, have recognised some version of the MCD in relation to constitutional or legal rights. 2 However, this report will almost exclusively concentrate on the nature and value of the MCD as it has developed within international law and practice.
