Research/extension group within the Federal University of Pernambuco dealing with Indigenous Rights, Trasitional Justice, and the Interamerican System of Human Rights

Presence in: Brazil
Focus: Citizenship, Community / Customary Land Rights, Other, Peace-building

A research/extension group within the Federal University of Pernambuco. We deal with Indigenous Rights, Trasitional Justice, and the Interamerican System of Human Rights, trying to ensure legal protection and acess to the Intermerican System of Human Rights for those who need it most. We also try to increase awareness on the Interamerican System of Human Rights, its standards and jurisprudence, within the brazilian legal system and academia.

Most notably, we have produced an amicus curiae brief for the case “Povo Indígena Xukuru vs. Brasil”, which was recently judged by the Interamerican Court of Human Rights. We have also answered a questionnaire by the Interamerican Comission on Human Rights on LGBTI Rights. Most of our members also have some reaserch on the Interamerican System of Human Rights and Strategic Litigation.
