Who we are
The Observatori DESCA (ESCR Observatory) is a human rights centre that concentrates its efforts on dismantling the devalued perception of Economic, Social, Cultural and Environmental Rights (ESCR) -right to housing, to work, to education, to health, to food, to a safe environment- in relation to other rights such as Civil and Political Rights and patrimonial rights. To this end, the Observatori DESC combines political advocacy with research, consultancy, and the organization of courses and conferences and strategic litigation. Thus, research and publications are promoted, seminars and trainings are organized and popular demands and struggles are accompanied. All this without losing sight of the importance of local and global networking and participation in social campaigns.
