NASH ROJAS, Claudio. Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the Constitutional Justice in Latin America: developments in case law. Estudios constitucionales [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.1, pp. 65-118. ISSN 0718-5200.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-52002011000100004.

The work examines recent cases in Latin American constitutional jurisprudence on the social rights. This work reviews some general standards in the field of economic, social and cultural rights in the international law; analyzes some prominent cases in Latin American jurisprudence; establishes the manner in which this interpretation enriches rights and, finally, reviews the scope of this discussion in Chile and some interesting trends in hermeneutic and jurisprudence.
