Transparency in the choice of members of international human rights courts

The international protection of human rights is becoming increasingly important in world geopolitics, with emphasis on the role played by international courts. This is undoubtedly an important advance, however, still faces some challenges with regard, for example, to the transparency in the choice of the members that compose these bodies, because often dependent on political interests, which culminate in raising questions about their impartiality. In this context, the present research aimed to discuss the processes of choosing the judges of the international human rights courts, in order to propose mechanisms that guarantee their transparency and democratic representation. To this end, bibliographic and documentary research was carried out on the doctrine, legislation and jurisprudence of the United Nations Human Rights System, as well as the Inter-American System, proposing, in the end, a choice process more transparent and representative of socio-political diversity
