This is an Archive of a Past Event

Event will be held in Spanish.

Amidst the human rights crisis in the Americas, what role can and should the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights play?

Join the discussion (in Spanish) with current members of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, an autonomous organ of the Organization of American States (OAS) that promotes and protects human rights in the Americas. The IACHR also exercises oversight over the United States, since the U.S. is a member of the OAS.

We will be joined by Commissioners José de Jesús Orozco Henríquez, Paulo Vannuchi, Esmeralda Arosemena de Troitiño, Francisco José Eguiguren Praeli, and Enrique Gil Botero. An introduction will be provided by IACHR President and SLS Professor James Cavallaro. The discussion will be moderated by Mirte Postema.
