Jo M. Pasqualucci provides a comprehensive critique of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, which is at once scholarly yet practical. She analyzes all aspects of the Court's advisory jurisdiction, contentious jurisdiction, and provisional measures orders. When relevant, she compares the practice and procedure of the Inter-American Court with that of the European Court of Human Rights, the International Court of Justice, and the United Nations Human Rights Committee. She also evaluates the Rules of Procedure of the Inter-American Court and the Inter-American Commission, which entered into force in May and June of 2001 and bring about important procedural changes in the inter-relationship of those organs. In addition, she cites the effectiveness of the Convention and the Court's rulings in the domestic law of the States Parties to the Convention. This book will provide an important resource for scholars, practitioners, and students of international human rights law and practice.
