Constitutional actions for the protection of human rights

This paper has the general objective of presenting the inter-American standard on actions for the protection of human rights and its development at the national level, in particular, presenting which were the rights whose protection was most requested. protection during the pandemic and the most repeated responses by judges. To do this, a distinction will be made between the simple generic resource that allows all rights to be protected and the specific resource that serves to exclusively protect the right to freedom. This is usually known as habeas corpus, widely used in all Latin American countries during the pandemic. Likewise, there are broader remedies, such as in Chile, where the amparo appeal of article 21 of the Chilean Constitution (the one that is going to be replaced) serves to protect liberty in general and is also used as a remedy by persons deprived of their liberty.
