“This collection is a fascinating account of the state of the protection of socio-economic rights in Botswana which features well established and emerging scholars. Taken together, the chapters present a comprehensive treatment of the subject, exposing the potentials and limitations of the approach to the protection of socio-economic rights taken by Botswana. This work will attract the attention of researchers across the globe who are interested in the domestic protection of socio-economic rights and the role of law in enhancing peoples’ socio-economic wellbeing.”  – Prof. Danwood Chirwa, Professor & Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Cape Town.

“This edited collection of essays fills a yawning gap in the jurisprudence of the protection and promotion of human rights in Botswana. The idea that socio-economic rights are significant tools in addressing freedom, equality, poverty, disease, illiteracy, homelessness, and poor sanitation are explored in this book in a thoughtful practical profound and comparative style.” – Prof. Enyinna S Nwauche, Professor, Nelson Mandela School of Law, University of Fort Hare.

“The chapters in this book, individually and collectively, captures the challenges and opportunities to the promotion and protection of socio-economic rights. It is through such honest and refreshing contributions that we can have a true sense of where we are as a nation. Not only is this work intellectually stimulating, but it is also timely considering that Botswana is embarking on a constitutional review process. It is beyond doubt that this book will inform this process and the work of all in the legal fraternity locally and beyond.” – H.E. Sanji M.
