Artículo sobre el cumplimiento de las decisiones del Sistema Interamericano

Este reporte fue elaborado por Oswaldo Ruiz-Chiriboga

La Revista Human Rights Quarterly (Vol. 34(4), 2012, pp.959-985) publicó un artículo de Courtney Hillebrecht titulado “The Domestic Mechanisms of Compliance with International Human Rights Law: Case Studies from the Inter-American Human Rights System”. Este es el abstract:

“In their rulings, international human rights tribunals frequently ask states to engage in costly compliance measures ranging from paying reparations to victims to changing domestic human rights laws and practices. The tribunals, however, have little enforcement or oversight capacity. The responsibility for compliance falls to domestic actors: executives, legislators, and judiciaries. Through nuanced case studies of the compliance process in Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia, this article suggests that compliance with the Inter-American human rights tribunals' rulings depends on executives' political will for compliance and their ability to build pro-compliance coalitions with judges and legislators.”
