Abstract / Description

This article discusses the remarkable approach to redress which has been developed by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and asks what the European Court could learn. For decades the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) set the standard to be followed by other courts on the treatment of human rights violations. Certainly, it is the oldest regional human rights court and has contributed greatly to the protection and development of international human rights law. Nevertheless, the last two decades have witnessed important changes in regional human rights adjudication. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR) constitutes an excellent example of what a relatively young court can achieve and of the ways in which such a body can also help in the development of international human rights law. This is particularly true in relation to the IACtHR’s approach to reparation, an area where the ECtHR faces testing legal and practical challenges. This article outlines some principles developed by the IACtHR that could be of relevance to the ECtHR.
