It was a programme of training on Economic, Social and Cultural (ESC) rights enforceability approaches which consisted in exchanging experiences in order to build methodological capacities and skills: How to enforce ESC rights? Through what kind of actions? With whom? etc.

We all have different types of experiences which complement each other. Our goal was to share these experiences and learn the ESC rights enforceability methods used by our colleagues in Africa, Asia and South America, in order to re-appropriate them when possible.


The project consisted in a three-year training cycle (2008-2011) during which training sessions were organised by social leaders who master a specific ESC rights claiming method. These sessions were directed towards other countries’ social leaders who have no - or insufficient - knowledge thereof.
