The inter-American human rights system continues to play an important role in protecting human rights. Its Inter-American Commission and Inter-American Court are making innovative efforts to document the impact of their decisions and to monitor compliance across the region.

How can we assess the transformative impact of the inter-American system? Participants in this session will discuss the Observatory of Impact, a novel platform created by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to monitor the impact of its recommendations in collaboration with strategic actors, scholars, and communities.

This event is presented by by the Keough School of Global Affairs and its Kellogg Institute for International Studies and Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights, by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, and by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law.
