CFP: Institutional Change and the Inter-American Human Rights System

Dear colleagues,

The Inter-American Human Rights Network will be holding its next workshop, entitled “The Inter-American Human Rights System: The Law and Politics of Institutional Change” at University College London’s Institute of the Americas on 9th and 10th October 2015.

Papers and presentations will examine the political factors that have shaped the institutional development of the Inter-American Human Rights System, the normative and legal transformation the IAHRS has experienced, and the effect of these changes on the impact, broadly defined, of the inter-American system. The network is currently inviting submissions for papers related to any of the three key themes to be discussed:

  1. The politics of institutional change;
  2. Patterns of normative and legal change;
  3. The impact of these institutional and/or normative and legal changes.

Papers may be presented in any of the network’s working languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) and the deadline for submission of titles and abstracts is Monday 1st June 2015. For further information on the topics to be examined, and submission guidelines, please see the attached.
