Abstract

This article explores recent progress in the development of international indicators for economic, social, and cultural rights (ESCR) and benefits ascribed to indicator standardization. Part Two outlines the general approaches and key considerations of initiatives that have undertaken international ESCR indicator development. Part Three categorizes the anticipated benefits of standardization according to their level of influence. Part Four describes how current initiatives derive indicators from the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) legal framework and highlights the importance of calibrating international indicators to specific Covenant obligations. Part Five describes how international indicators can impact ICESCR norm clarification, and Part Six addresses remaining issues and concerns related to international ESCR indicator development.
