  1. Congratulations to Dr. Schmid for this work! On the joint 50th anniversary of the two International Covenants, it is really timely to raise the profile and relevance of the ESCRs.

    We work to encourage States to adopt practices that prevent torture. In doing so, we are aware of the potential for overlap between gross breaches of ESCRs and other international law violations, including those which might, in some circumstances, lead to liability in ICL.

    I look forward to reading the full work in due course.
