Ifrane - The phenomenon of globalization has attracted more attention than perhaps any other subject in recent times. However, it has become increasingly evident over the last decades that globalization has a negative impact on the enjoyment of human rights, particularly the economic, social and cultural rights, which are guaranteed by the universal declaration of human rights (UDHR), Article 27, and in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), Article 15. In the past, civil and political rights have been given much consideration in theory and practice due to the consequences of WWII, while economic, social and cultural rights have been neglected. Hence, should priority not be given to the enjoyment of economic, social, and cultural rights, since globalization has created novel threats to our diverse world?
