The Struggle for Rights in Mexico and Latin America

Posted on 03/11/2015

On Wednesday 28 October, Dr Pedro Salazar Ugarte, head of Mexico's most prestigious institute for legal research and both a legal scholar and political scientist spoke about the 'Struggle for Rights in Mexico and Latin America'. Dr. Salazar Ugarte placed the struggle for rights squarely in the context of the region's constitutional history and countries' attempts to establish functioning constitutional democracies. Plagued by inequality the presidential systems of the regions all too often risk degenerating either into oligarchic or populist pseudo-democracies. Human rights and their enforcement through the inter-American system present, according to Dr. Salazar Ugarte, a way out of a political dilemma that has held the region back for decades. The packed event was chaired by Dr Holger Hestermeyer, Shell Reader in International Dispute Resolution. 

Formed in 2015, the King’s Forum on International Dispute Resolution responds to one of the most significant and most exciting challenges the legal profession has to face in the 21st century: the internationalisation of dispute resolution.
