Regional Supervisory Bodies

Here is a collection of relevant cases heard by regional courts and quasi-judicial bodies such as the European Court of Human Rights, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights and the European Committee of Social Rights, in matters relating to social protection.

We have included brief summaries along with the original deliberations to demonstrate that the human right to social security is increasingly justiciable (suitable for legal action or proceedings) at the regional level.
