On 7th June, Peace Brigades International and the Institute for the Study of the Americas (University of London, School of Advanced Study) will co-host a workshop focusing on Mexico and the Inter-American Human Rights System. The event will bring together a series of interdisciplinary panels and audience from NGOs and from the political, legal and academic sectors, with the aim of increasing understanding of the human rights situation in Mexico, especially with regards to the implementation of the rulings of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
The workshop will also explore this topic in comparative perspective with the European Court of Human Rights, and will draw attention to two emblematic cases recently ruled on by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, those of two indigenous women, Ms. Inés Fernández Ortega and Ms. Valentina Rosendo Cantú.
