Report of the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights

The present report to the United Nations General Assembly focuses on the implementation of the right to social protection through the adoption by all States of social protection floors. In this report, the Special Rapporteur reviews the reasons for the marginality of social protection during most of the twentieth century and then traces the evolution of the concept of social protection floors and notes its defining characteristics.
