Abstract

The paper aims to explain in which ways economic, social and cultural rights are being translated into workable claims to combat the negative impacts of the Sidoardjo Hot Mud Tragedy in East Java, Indonesia. Upon examination of the strenuous effort done by the National Human Rights Commission in deploying Indonesian human rights laws and framing human sufferings as human rights violations, the paper concludes that social movements’ engagement to political struggles that avoid a direct confrontation with state is powerful as a moral force, yet it is vulnerable to actually deliver outcomes. Keywords: economic, social and cultural rights, Indonesia, national human rights commission
