Abstract

South Africa's Constitution is one of the most progressive in the world and HSRC research shows that our court decisions genuinely promote the realisation of socio-economic rights. Unfortunately, these decisions are not always implemented, write Prof. Narnia Bohler-Muller, Adv Gary Pienaar, Dr Michael Cosser and Dr Gerard Hagg.
