Law and Policy in Latin America : Transforming Courts, Institutions, and Rights Hardback

Edited by Pedro Fortes, Larissa Verri Boratti, Larissa Boratti, Andres Palacios Lleras, Tom Gerald Daly

Part of the St Antony's Series series


This book offers a comprehensive introduction to law and policy responses to contemporary problems in Latin America, such as human rights violations, regulatory dilemmas, economic inequality, and access to knowledge and medicine.

It includes 19 chapters written by sociologists, lawyers, and political scientists on the transformations of courts, institutions and rights protection in Latin America, all of which stem from presentations at conferences in Oxford and UCL organised by the editors.

The contributors present original analyses based on rigorous research, innovative case-studies, and interdisciplinary perspectives, all written in an accessible style.

Topics include the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, institutional design, financial regulation, competition, discrimination, gender quotas, police violence, orphan works, healthcare, and environmental protection, among others.

The book will be of interest to students and scholars interested in policymaking, public law, and development.
