Budgets and human rights: Guidelines for litigators

In this guide, the authors  explore different worrying scenarios —such as budgetary cuts or inefficiencies in human rights related to spending— and discuss possibilities to take States to court to mend those scenarios. They provide arguments and supportive case law aimed at serving as tools for this kind of litigation. In addition, we will offer a number of arguments to respond to typical defenses made by State’s in litigation involving budgeting.
