This text gives an analytical account of the Inter-American Convention of Human Rights - which includes substantive guarantees of economic, social and cultural rights, amongst others. These guarantees are examined not only from the US perspective, but also from a Latin-American angle, including considerable focus on the protection of minorities and indigenous peoples, as well as on amnesties and emergencies. The system of supervision of this convention is also dealt with at length, including an examination of its achievements and its weaknesses. The role of non-governmental organizations is also examined in this context.;This book should be of interest to all those working in and studying the fields of international law and human rights, especially those dealing with this latter subject as regards the American continent. The international content of the book should appeal to students and academics worldwide, particularly those in the UK and US. Those working in the areas of immigration and the protection of minorities should also find this book helpful.
