    The Inter-American Human Rights System

    Please join us for a special event featuring Charles Moyer from the Inter-American Institute of Human Rights, who will present a talk entitled “The Inter-American System of Human Rights: From an auspicious beginning to an uncertain future.” Professor Ariel Dulitzky will serve as respondent. Light refreshments will be served.

    The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, the keystone of the Inter-American System, has gone from being a staunch defender of human rights, especially during the darkest periods in the hemisphere, to having to defend itself from attacks by the governments that created it and established its norms. In addition, the more recently established Inter-American Court of Human Rights has been a spill-over victim of these attacks. The Organization of American States, which exists to promote and protect human rights, is now the battleground where the war on the system is being played out.

    Charles Moyer has devoted his professional career to the international protection of human rights. He was a Specialist of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights from 1970-79 and was elected to be the first Secretary of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, where he served during the 1980s. Prior to joining the Inter-American Commission, Moyer served as an Army Artillery officer and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Venezuela. After his retirement from the Organization of American States in 1989, Moyer served as an adjunct professor at American University’s Washington School of Law. He currently works with the Inter-American Institute of Human Rights in San José, Costa Rica. Moyer received a B.A. from Gettysburg College and a J.D. from the University of Michigan.
