Identifying standards of judicial review for implementation of socio-economic rights.

Judicial review of such state actions that affect socio economic well-being of citizens, must be sensitive to the needs of such citizens who are socio-economically vulnerable. For this, judicial review must be so oriented as to identify a minimum core of these rights exclusively for such vulnerable citizens. Such vulnerable citizens must have priority of access to the minimum core of these rights over the privileged classes. This identification must be in two forms. First, the courts must defer to the executive’s decision regarding the allocation of its finite resources for those who need them the most. Second, the courts must interfere in such cases where the resources are not being spent on those who need them the most. Hence, the standard of judicial review must be relate to the content of the socio-economic right, instead of whether it is implemented by the legislature / executive or the judiciary.
