The Social Rights Jurisprudence in the Inter-American Court of Human Rights

Shadow and Light in International Human Rights

Isaac de Paz González

Working with progressive conceptual categories relating to indigenous property, cultural identity, the right to an adequate standard of living and healthcare, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights continues to build a justiciability to determine the social rights of marginalised individuals and groups in the Americas.
