Who are we?

We are a network in the Americas that brings together professionals, academics and scholars involved in the study of justice system institutions in the region. The network promotes education on the rights and freedoms of individuals before public institutions, as well as training institutional actors in international human rights law.

 

To this end, the Network generates new knowledge, evidence and shares best practices through studies, interdisciplinary collaborative research and dialogue with legal actors and civil society. Our aim is to propose alternatives and responses to the obstacles that specially protected groups face in exercising their right of access to justice, as well as to respond to the challenges posed by the legitimacy of democratic governance of justice in the region.
