To launch the book Doctrine, Practice and Advocacy in the Inter-American Human Rights System (Oxford University Press, 2019), leading academics and practitioners, including the book's co-authors, will share insights from theory and practice on the Inter-American System today.
Doctrine, Practice and Advocacy in the Inter-American Human Rights System is co-authored by James L. Cavallaro, Caret Vargas, Clara Sandoval and Bernard Duhaim with Caroline Bettinger-Lopez, Stephanie Erin Brewer, Diana Guzman and Cecilia Nadeo.
'At long last, a monumental work in English about the enormous contributions of the Inter-American System of protection to the modern canon of human rights. The authors are among the most authoritative practitioners and advocates active today, and their rigorous and comprehensive narrative is a crowning achievement.' Juan Mendez, Former President, Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, former UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Professor, Washington College of Law, American University

This short course, which can be followed in Geneva or online, reviews the origins of international criminal law, its relationship with the international legal order including the UN Security Council and its coexistence with national justice institutions.
