This last week I have had the opportunity to discuss my thoughts on the role of the Inter-American Human Rights System in shaping transitional justice trends in Latin America. On Saturday, 1 June, as part of the Latin American Studies Association Annual Conference in Washington D.C. I participated in a panel on the selectivity of human rights trials. My remarks are available here.
Yesterday, Tuesday 4 June, at a conference on ‘Truth, Justice and Reparations in Latin America’ at Senate House, University of London (programme available here), I sought to expand on my LASA remarks by offering some reflections on the extent to which the principles, norms and procedures, developed by the IAHRS in response to TJ have been deployed in the System’s approach to contemporary human rights challenges in Latin America. My notes are available here.
