New ILAS publication: Chile and the Inter-American Human Rights System

Tuesday 20 June 2017

We are delighted to announce the publication of our most recent book: “Chile and the Inter-American Human Rights System”.

This edited volume brings together well established and emerging human rights scholars and practitioners to discuss the central challenges in the areas of LGBT rights, torture and Indigenous Rights in the Americas. 

The theoretical and empirical contributions in this edited book are based on the most recent cases decided by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights against the Chilean state, namely: (a) Case of Atala Riffo and daughters v. Chile, (b) Case of García Lucero et al. v. Chile, and (c) Case of Norín Catrimán et al. (Leaders, members and activist of the Mapuche Indigenous People) v. Chile.

Using different methodological approaches such as case studies, legal analysis and cross-national approaches, the authors go beyond the description of these three cases to reflect on the importance of the IAHRS, its increasing developments and the improvements that it has generated in the region.

Edited by Karinna Fernández, Cristian Peña and Sebastián Smart.
