GARCIA RAMIREZ, Sergio. Roots, actuality and perspectives of the Human Rights Inter American Jurisdiction. Cuest. Const. [online]. 2009, n.20, pp.149-190. ISSN 1405-9193.

The International Law of Human Rights extends and projects itself in the different areas of the internal Law within the States. In this sense, America has done her, and has added herself to the systems of the protection of Human Rights -which conforms the International Law of Human Rights- in harmony to the interests of the international community and at the same time in accordance with her own principles and circumstances. That is how OAS, civil society, ombudsman, public defender, academy, social communicators, free pro-fessionals, victims, and the Interamerican Commission and the Court on Human Rigths converge diligences and convert themselves in protagonists of the system and agents of its development and effectiveness. The reader will find in this article a general panorama of the present Interamerican system, through a clear and brief exposition about its actors and the function that they perform; the normative, administrative and jurisdictional attributions of the Interamerican Court, some of the transcendental subjects that it has dealt within its jurisdiction; as the treatment of the meanings and a reflexion about the future of the Interamerican jurisdiction.

Keywords : Interamerican Jurisdiction; Human Rights; American Convention of Human Rights; reception of the International Law of Human Rights; International Protection.
