"...a significant contribution to the study of the Inter-American human rights sytem and international human rights law more generally...Throughout the book the discussion of each particular point is extremely detailed, providing full reference to relevant case law, rules and treaty provisions. Even though the focus is on procedure, the extensive discussion of case law provides a good dea lof analysis on substantive issues, demonstrating the intimate connection between procedure and substance in ensuring the protection of human rights." - Dr. Richard Burchill, University of Hull
This critique of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights is at once scholarly and practical. Professor Pasqualucci analyzes all aspects of the Court's advisory and contentious jurisdiction and its provisional measures orders. She examines the Rules of Procedure of the Inter-American Court and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, highlighting the important changes the Rules bring about in the inter-relationship of those organs. She also cites the effectiveness of the Convention and the Court's rulings in the domestic law of States Parties to the Convention.
