Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to see how human rights principles overlap with the practice of a parliamentary committee involved in fiscal oversight. To that end, this paper analyses the discussion of the Northern Irish Budget 2011-2015 from the perspective of human rights principles derived from International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). The aim is to see what is the congruence between the concepts used in such debates and scrutiny and the concepts used in human rights law.
