HRREC endorsed the creation of an independent panel to monitor elections in the Inter-American’s Human Rights System.

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre endorsed the creation of a new panel of five independent experts to monitor the forthcoming election of members to the Inter-American’s human rights Commission and Court. The Panel has been established in advance of this June’s election of four new commissioners to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, and four judges to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Established as an independent entity, the panel was convened by the Open Society Justice Initiative with the support of a wide range of NGOs, universities, and bar associations throughout the region.
