THE “IUS CONSTITUTIONALE COMMUNE” AND THE ROLE OF THE INTER-AMERICAN COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS IN BUILDING RESILIENCE IN A CONTEXT OF LATIN AMERICAN CRISIS

The presentation will focus on the transformative mandate of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) in building resilience in a context of Latin American crisis, in the light of the “Ius Constitutionale Commune”; on the challenge of understanding the most recent regional convulsion (embracing crisis in several countries such as Nicaragua, Equador, Chile and Bolivia); on the special methodology of the IACHR to promptly and timely deal with crisis giving effective and immediate responses at real time; and on the resilience of the IACHR in the exercise of its transformative mandate as an important player in the process of democratization in the Americas, contributing for human rights protection and social change in such a tense, hostile, complex and violent regional landscape.
