On 11 November 2015, the American Society of International Law (ASIL) published a special edition of its AJIL Unbound journal, in which four scholars and practitioners reflect on the interaction of the Inter-American Court with domestic judiciaries in Latin America.
According to the collection’s editors, the essays “provide insight into the transformation of what was once a region of legalist interpretive theory and sovereigntist states into a more cosmopolitan, integrated and rights-oriented legal realm”.
The Symposium publication was edited by Alexandra Huneeus, IAHRN scholar and Associate Professor of Law at University of Wisconsin Law School.
