Article 2 and Governments’ Budgets Series
Article 2 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) sets out what governments are obligated to do to help realize people’s human rights. Developed by the Article 2 Project, the Article 2 and Governments’ Budgets handbook focuses on civil society budget work, explores what “achieving progressively,” “to the maximum of its available resources,” and “without discrimination” mean for the way that governments should raise, allocate, and spend their budgets so as to best realize people’s human rights. As a complement to the handbook, IBP held a series of webinars on these issues: “Progressive Realization,” “Non Discrimination,” and “Maximum Available Resources.”
