The situation of human rights in Latin America has significantly worsened in recent years. In this adverse context, it has been the region’s Constitutional Courts that have taken a stand for democracy and the defense of rights and freedoms. Their decisions, often issued in the midst of strong pressures and threats, have been key to restraining
power, curbing the implementation of measures that restrict human rights, and removing obstacles to the fight against impunity and corruption.
Please note, this event will be held in Spanish.
