IBE, Stanley. Implementing economic, social and cultural rights in Nigeria: Challenges and opportunities. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 197-211. ISSN 1609-073X.

The article explores ways of overcoming challenges in the effective implementation of economic, social and cultural rights in Nigeria. It begins with a brief review of the legal architecture of economic, social and cultural rights. It examines challenges to implementing these rights, such as locus standi, justiciability and the doctrine of dualism. Finally, it identifies the opportunities provided by Nigeria's current constitutional review process; the debate on access to information legislation; legislative action; and citizens' education, empowerment and mobilisation.
