My intervention will analyze some of the most significant developments in the case law of the Inter-American Court since the entry into force of the American Convention. Therefore, I will focus on the gross and systematic violations of fundamental rights in relation to the idea of transformative constitutionalism in the region. The role of the Court's work in interpreting the content and scope of the obligation to guarantee the rights established in the Convention has changed and nowadays is transformative for the region. However, the task of building up democracy, the rule of law and human rights values in the states of the region is still far from complete.
