The role of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights

My presentation will analyze how the evolution of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights as the fundamental human rights tribunal in the Americas. The Court has handed down key decisions, pushing for change at the domestic level and creating a community of rights and constitutionalism across Latin America. The Court must face different types of challenges and the American Convention’s anniversary is an excellent moment to take stock of the Court’s influence on human rights law and the challenges that lie ahead.
