In 1976, The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) was extended to Guernsey. Much of the Convention can be gradually realised. While some progress has been made, it is clear that insufficient progress has made on matters that do require immediate attention (e.g. non-discrimination), and the evidence suggests that there is no real commitment to realising other matters, such as equal pay for work of equal value, and full access to employment.
