The Activity of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in 2016

(p.685) VIII.1 Introductory Note

During 2016, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights issued fourteen judgments in contentious cases and seven interpretations of previous judgments that covered a wide variety of issues, ranging from grave human rights violations, such as forced disappearances, to violations of the minimum guarantees of due process. However, it is important to note this year as one in which the protection of sexual and reproductive rights was brought to the fore of the Court’s jurisprudence, and one in which the Court tackled new issues, such as forced sterilization and modern-day slavery.

Keywords:   IACtHR, due process, forced disappearances, forced sterilization, modern-day slavery, reproductive rights, sexual rights
