Shadow and Light in International Human Rights
Chapter 6: Labour rights: the path to a direct interpretation of Article 26 ACHR
Chapter six addresses an innovative theoretical approach on ESR in the IACtHR: the possibility to judge poverty as a form of discrimination. In the case of Hacienda Brazil Verde v. Brazil, the court adopts a position on structural discrimination and contemporary slavery. This chapter also provides evidence of different courts (whether domestic or regional) and methods of civil, criminal and human rights law to punish slavery, human trafficking and poverty. The aim of this part of the book is to expose that legal intervention is essential to take structural discrimination and poverty as a matter of justiciability, whether in domestic, regional and international arenas.
