The transformative vocation of the reparations of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights

In this presentation, the speaker reviews the development of the Court’s jurisprudence on reparations, especially on the guarantee of non-repetition. He will observe the specificities of the matter and will characterize the dimension of the IACtHR’s contribution in this field, perhaps the most important contribution of this International Tribunal on the global comparative level. Based on concrete jurisprudential examples, he explains why the Court’s structural reparations have a transformative vocation. He also presents the Court’s supervision mechanisms that are essential to ensure effective compliance with its judgments.
