My presentation examines the role of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. The Commission has become a key actor in the promotion and protection of human rights in the Americas. It has effectively held states accountable and has had to endure significant obstacles. As the American Convention turns 50 it is critical to reflect on the challenges and opportunities for the Commission, its relationship with states, the Court and civil society.
