Despite the complex political and economic context facing the region, Latin American countries have undeniably advanced in adopting innovative mechanisms to ensure the effective realisation of human rights, such as constitutional acknowledgment, protection of vulnerable groups and reparation for past crimes. However, Latin American countries are still facing many challenges in terms of effectively addressing human rights. In this video, Javier Hernández, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Mexico, along with Miguel Moguel, Claudia López and Mariana Mora, researchers in Fundar’s department of Human Rights and Citizen Security, explain the current situation of human rights in the region, as well as some of the challenges, innovative approaches and lessons learned coming out of the region.
