The Inter-American Court of Human Rights
Case-Law and Commentary
This work offers the first systematic analysis of the case law of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to be published in the English language. The book provides a comprehensive collation and commentary on the jurisprudence of the Court, situating it in the broader context of international human rights law, drawing comparisons in particular with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. It features coverage of both procedural and substantive human rights law. Comprehensively indexed and cross-referenced, the book offers for the first time in English ready access to the jurisprudence of one of the major regional human rights courts. It will be of use to the judiciary, human rights practitioners, human rights activists, government institutions, academics, and students alike. Based on an original French publication, the book has been fully updated and rewritten and includes extensive bibliographies for each of the issues and rights selected for commentary.
