Pablo Saavedra, LL.M. '96 Executive Secretary of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights

Since its creation more than 40 years ago, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights has become increasingly crucial to the legal developments and to strengthening the rule of law in the Americas. Its decisions have had a major impact on the region and have triggered deep-running structural changes in various countries. In this talk, Saavedra will share his analysis of the Court's impact on legislation, public policy, and institutions in Latin American countries.
