Fecha: (1/19/2018 2:24:45 PM)


The Inter-American Institute of Human Rights (IIHR) is pleased to present the 65th edition of its IIHR Review, which has been published since 1985. This edition contains a series of articles written by participants of the XXXIV Interdisciplinary Course in Human Rights, held in 2016.  

In her article “The family in the juridical-social context of persons with disabilities,” Emna Espinosa (Panama) shows the need to adopt an inclusive, differential, gender and rights-based focus in formulating public policies for the effective protection of families that contain  one or more persons with a disability. For her part, Ana Gaitán (Mexico), in “The semantic entanglement of human rights,” writes on the controversy arising from the so-called proliferation of rights. Gabriela García Minella (Argentina) is the author of “A look at the effective application of the right to health of persons deprived of their freedom in Argentina,” which describes how it affects these vulnerable individuals.

The article of Víctor Malpartida Castillo (Peru), “Redimensioning labor rights,” analyzes their obligatory nature under the inter-American system of protection and  the subject matter of Santiago Roca (Argentina) is “The right of access to justice and the guarantee of due process of migrants in Argentina,” where he reviews the norms in this area and how they affect their right to access to justice and offers the pertinent jurisprudence.

Josué San Miguel Mora (Mexico) argues that it is imperative that there be a constitutional recognition of an indigenous jurisdiction in order to avoid that these peoples be discriminated against in his article “The consolidation of the indigenous jurisdiction in Mexico in the 21st century. Interpretation and judicial experience from the perspective of human rights. Social reality and political philosophy, with a differential focus.” Finally, Natalia Urbina (Argentina) examines “The process of supervision of the judgments of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights” with a focus on the different facets of its decisions between 2013 and 2016.
