Inter-American Human Rights Network

Earlier this month, scholars and practitioners engaged with the Inter-American Human Rights System (IAHRS; namely, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights) launched the new Inter-American Human Rights Network.  Funded by a grant from the Leverhulme Trust and based out of University College London (UCL), the Inter-American Human Rights Network seeks to develop collaborative research programs on the Inter-American Human Rights System.  In doing so, we hope to connect with scholars across a variety of disciplines and geographic regions, as well as with policymakers and activists.  Our launch meeting in Mexico City in mid-October addressed the impact of the Inter-American system, which is one of our three core thematic issues, alongside the institutional development of the IAHRS and the IARHS in comparative perspective.  If you’d like to learn about the Network, its members and our research and policy outputs, check out our website:
