Rules of Procedure

The Inter-American Court of Human presents its new Rules of Procedure, the product of constructive, participatory, and transparent communication with the different actors and users of the Inter-American System for the promotion and protection of human rights that participated in the Court's call for observations.

These new Rules of Procedure are the result of a second phase of dialogue and reflection initiated by the Inter-American Court some time ago with the different actors and users of the Inter-American System, which has been reflected in a process of consultation carried out through the convocation of all persons and institutions wishing to participate, using for that purpose various means of information and mechanisms accessible to all. In this phase, it is important to note the dialogue and coordination carried out with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
