Compliance with Judgments and Decisions: The Experience of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights: A Reassessment

  • Antônio Augusto Cançado Trindade
Part of the Nigerian Yearbook of International Law book series (NYBIL, volume 2017)


Although the discussion in this paper derives from an address originally presented to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in 2014 on the occasion of the opening of its judicial year, it is hoped that its publication in the Nigerian Yearbook of International Law might assist in sharing more broadly experiences gained at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR), in the hope that those experiences might assist sister human rights courts in Africa and elsewhere in tackling possibly common problems.
