New paper: Brazilian Post-Transitional Justice and the Inter-American Human Rights System

On Friday, 14 February, I gave a talk on “Brazilian Post-Transitional Justice and the Inter-American Human Rights System” at the Latin American Centre, Oxford. The focus of my remarks was on the role of the Inter-American Human Rights System and I emphasised the types of transitional justice policies that may be required from Brazil in light of the Gomes Lund ruling by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights from November 2010. I discussed some key implications of what the ruling, and the Brazilian government’s responses to it, tell us about the prospects for and limitations on Brazilian post-transitional justice, and arguably, Brazilian democracy more broadly. The paper is available here.
