Dr Par Engstrom discusses Brazilian Post-Transitional Justice and the Inter-American Human Rights System

On Friday, 14 February, Dr Par Engstrom gave a talk on “Brazilian Post-Transitional Justice and the Inter-American Human Rights System”. His remarks focused on the role of the Inter-American Human Rights System and discussed the types of transitional justice policies that may be required from Brazil in the aftermath of the November 2010 Gomes Lund verdict by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Dr Engstrom discussed what some of the key implications of the ruling and of the Brazilian government’s responses to it tell us about the prospects for and limitations of Brazilian post-transitional justice, and arguably, Brazilian democracy more broadly.
