Why an observatory of impact?

Talking about impact and transformation has become commonplace in the language of human rights. However, there are often divergences derived from the multiple visions, expectations, and utilities that social actors assign to these rights, as well as to the bodies linked to their guarantee and protection. For this reason, the IACHR has decided to launch the Impact Observatory of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. This effort aims to map and systematize the impacts generated by the IACHR in the Americas and foster synergies with other similar initiatives and promote dialogue and coordination with strategic actors and communities interested in the effectiveness of the Inter-American Human Rights System.

Call to present academic papers on the analysis of the impact of the activities and resolutions of the IACHR

Researchers, students, members of civil society, and interested persons are invited to present academic papers on the process of analysis and discussion of the impact of the various activities and resolutions of the IACHR, within the framework of the Impact Observatory to contribute to their objective of contributing to the collaborative analysis for the reflection, systematization, visibility and methodological evaluation of the impact of the institution in the defense and protection of human rights in the hemisphere. Read bases and conditions.
