OAS refresher courses in Mexico and Guatemala spotlight the Inter-American system

A five-week refresher course on the inter-American system, sponsored by the Diplomatic Academy of Guatemala, wrapped up in that Central American country on Monday, September 13. Meanwhile, a training course for diplomats from Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international law professors from Mexico opened on Friday, September 17. It was organized with support from Mexico's Matias Romero Institute.

Part of the Inter-American Program for the Development of International Law adopted by the OAS General Assembly in 1996 and updated in 2011, these activities also fulfill an OAS mandate to promote training and knowledge exchange with the region’s foreign affairs ministries.

The OAS courses examine the structure and evolution of the OAS as well as developments in terms of the promotion of democracy and the codification and progressive development of inter-American law. The latest works of the Inter-American Juridical Committee are also featured.
