She writes: “As part of a new constitutional settlement, we need to guarantee all human rights, including economic and social rights, in law. This reform is long overdue, but in the context of our dire current socioeconomic situation, it is needed more than ever.” Read the full letter in The Guardian.

Geraldine Van Bueren is Professor Emerita at Queen Mary University of London.
