“The Future of the Inter-American Human Rights System” - Spring 2014

Conference/Event Grant
Grant Year

This conference of experts will analyze structural challenges facing the InterAmerican Human Rights System, a proven force for advancing respect for human rights in the region for over fifty years.

The Inter-American System today faces acute challenges on multiple fronts, threatening to undermine its work and impact. The breadth of challenges facing the system call for reflection on which major and minor changes would improve its legitimacy, ensuring its effective promotion of human rights into the future.

The conference responds to this call for deep reflection. Participants include the most respected and experienced human rights lawyers, scholars, diplomats, judges and former judges. The conference is designed to generate an honest assessment of the critical, deep-seated problems facing the Inter-American system and of paths forward to realize its great promise.
