The recent judgment of the Supreme Court of Appeal in Rand Properties provides an opportunity to assess the use of administrative law arguments in advancing the realisation of socio-economic rights. The judgment itself is disappointing in this respect by failing to grapple effectively with the potentially constructive interaction between section 33 of the Constitution and the various socio-economic rights provisions.
