CHENWI, Lilian. Correcting the historical asymmetry between rights: The Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.1, pp.23-51. ISSN 1996-2096.

This article examines the Optional Protocol, starting with the historical background and its content, highlighting some of the main issues of controversy.
