ETCHICHURY, Horacio Javier. Universality and Social Rights: Toward a Constitutional Revision of Social Policies in Argentina. Estud. Socio-Juríd [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.1, pp.327-354. ISSN 0124-0579.

The article analyzes the notion of universality in social rights entitlements under Argentina's Constitution. After reviewing how this notion is phrased in the Constitution and binding human rights treaties endowed with constitutional rank, the article looks into the effects of universality in public policy design, implementation and appraisal. In particular, the article assesses targeted and conditional policies. Finally, the text advocates a policy revision according to consistency with the principle of universality.

Keywords : Universality; social rights; public policies.
