Individual Complaints relating to the ICESCR

As of now, no individual complaint can be submitted before the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. However, an Optional Protocol to the ICESCR granting the right of individuals or groups to submit complaints has been adopted by the UN General Assembly on 10 December 2008. It was opened for signature on 24 September 2009 and will enter into force three months after it has been ratified by 10 states. As of February 2012, the Optional Protocol has been ratified by 7 states.
