At joint meetings with the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in Costa Rica this past week, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) made significant progress on proposed changes to its Rules of Procedure, policies and practices. The purpose of the proposed reforms is to strengthen the Inter-American System of Human Rights. The IACHR will now be publishing those proposed changes and seeking public comment over a two-week period. For more information, see this IACHR press release.
