This paper talks about human rights as the basic norm that aspire to protect all the people from any severe political, legal, and social abuses that would hamper their rights as a human being. And also talks about economic injustice or economic inequality as the unequal distribution of income and opportunity between the different groups in society. Judicial enforcement has a clear and wide role in developing the understanding of these rights, like in remedying clear violations, and in providing decisions on test cases that can lead to a proper institutional change and prevent future rights violations. Economic issues have very much entered the human rights arena, they primarily have done so with the aim of poverty reduction, through the deployment of social and economic rights, and therefore the right to development also. Moreover, to some extent, these approaches not only remain on the margins of human rights but are also often embedded in prescriptions for development that specialise in economic process, and neglect the distributive consequences of that growth.
