ELLA Spotlight on Knowledge: Spotlight on Publications: Human Rights in Latin America

Abstract

Strong national human rights institutions, an active regional human rights court, a human rights approach to budgeting and strategic litigation by civil society: these are just some of the innovative approaches Latin American countries are taking to improve human rights across the region. The publications presented in this Spotlight provide insight into some of the key issues and experiences from Latin America, with a particular focus on democratic and judicial reform, the role of regional and national courts in upholding human rights, innovative oversight mechanisms, strategic litigation and emerging hot topics such as anticorruption strategies.
