Research visit Vandenhole University of Sydney

In May 2018, Wouter Vandenhole of the Law and Development Research Group visited the Law Faculty of the University of Sydney as part of his research leave.

During his research leave, Wouter Vandenhole explores the implications of growth agnosticism for the conceptualization of economic, social and cultural rights. Strong definitions of sustainable development imply that growth can be no longer the driver of progressive realization of ESC rights, but suggest that redistribution is/should be.

This focus on redistribution in the economic literature coincides with a renewed interest in redistribution and redistributive equality in human rights law. What does human rights (law) have to say about redistribution and redistributive (income and wealth) equality? Does it go beyond offering a minimum social protection floor? Does it offer leverage for transformative equality? These and other questions where discussed with leading scholars in ESC rights at the University of Sydney, including David Kinley, Ben Saul and Jacqueline Mowbray.
