Abstract

This article examines the concept of strategic litigation in Latin America over
the past two decades from a theoretical and practical learning which explores
and challenges of that period. The proposal takes as its starting point the interpretation of the concept of strategic litigation by civil society organizations and
universities through the clinical teaching and activities with social projection and
it ends with a deepening in three areas of paramount importance for the future of
the human rights in the continent: women´s rights and human being environmental
and ethnic rights in Latin America.
