Beyond Compliance: The Impact of the Inter-American Human Rights System on Justice

Project: Research project

Description

The objective of the "Beyond Compliance" project is to conduct an analysis of the subtleties and varying levels of compliance and impact of the judgments of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, specifically the decisions ordering states to investigate and punish those responsible for serious human rights violations. Within the framework of the project, innovative methodological tools are being developed to evaluate, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the compliance and impact of the Inter-American Court's decisions at the domestic level. This complements the efforts of inter-American human rights institutions that monitor compliance with their own orders, and the academic literature that explores the impact of international judicial decisions.
