IIHR Review No. 66, which contains articles on the Inter-American Court of Human Rights’ recent advisory opinion Gender identity, and equality and non-discrimination with regard to same-sex couples, is the latest edition of the oldest periodical of its type in Latin America, the first having appeared in 1985.

Among the articles that may be found in this publication of the second semester of 2017 are “Intersexualidad y la opinión consultiva OC-24/17. Retos pendientes del sistema interamericano de derechos humanos,” by Olga Lucía Camacho Gutiérrez, who analyzes medical violence. The article of Luiza Drummond Veado, “Intersex and the law: how can the law protect intersex rights?” studies the concept of intersex persons. In “Educação, direito à não-discriminação de LGBTI e o artigo 12.4 da CADH,” Sergio Gardenghi Suiama discusses the rights to education and non-discrimination of LGBTI persons, while “Matrimonio, un concepto jurídico dinámico. Entre el perfeccionismo moral y el enfoque igualitario” –a joint study of Eduardo Elías Gutiérrez López and Raymundo Gutiérrez López– deals with the history and changes in the concept of marriage under the legal system of Mexico.

Additionally, Cristhian Manuel Jiménez in “Viabilidad de una convención para la eliminación de la discriminación y la violencia por orientación sexual e identidad de género” argues for the need for a UN convention on the subject. Leonardo Rivera Mendoza’s article -“El matrimonio igualitario: el caso de Honduras y una perspectiva kantiana”- deals with the problem in his country. Carlos Enrique González Aguirre in “Matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo: ¿Es un derecho reconocido y tutelado por el Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos? Reflexiones en torno a la sentencia Chapin y Charpentier contra Francia” provides an overview of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights in the field.

Finally, William Vega-Murillo and Esteban Vargas Mazas in “La opinión consultiva OC-24/17 solicitada por Costa Rica: El resultado de una consulta estratégica” analyze the effect of the recognition of sexual, reproductive and other rights of LGBTI persons in Costa Rica.
