Protection of Adequate Standard of Living

Is there any provision protecting adequate standard of living?

Michael,
Canberra, Australia




Answered by A.Tatoyan

In fact, there is no single convention or other legal provision on protection of adequate standard of living. Rather, the right to an adequate standard of living encompasses several more specific rights, including the right to food, the right to health, the right to water, the right to necessary social services, the right to clothing, and the right to housing.

Particularly, the right to an adequate standard of living is protected by Article 11 in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and Article 25 in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
