Summaries of Jurisprudence: Indigenous Peoples

CEJIL is proud to present a new addition to the series Tools for the Protection of Human Rights: Summaries of Jurisprudence. The focus of the present publication is the rights of indigenous peoples.

For several reasons, many indigenous peoples in different parts of the world have experienced the violent and systematic violation of their rights. Among them are a lack of recognition and respect for their culture and customs, and other, various discriminatory practices.

This publication identifies key decisions and progress on the rights of indigenous peoples in regional and international courts of human rights protection. We hope to contribute to the publication and wide-spread availability of the subject's standards produced by major international organizations among those working on this important issue and  facilitate their access and understanding to foster a better defense and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples.

Summaries of Jurisprudence: Gender-based Violence. 2nd Edition Updated

CEJIL presents a new title to its collection of Summaries of Jurisprudence, this time dedicated to Gender Violence.

This publication includes a selection of texts of decisions from international human rights organs related to the protection of women victims of violence. The compilation provides a solid body of jurisprudence that allows one to obtain a broad panorama of the reality of women in a variety of contexts, revealing the indisputable relevance of gender violence in the world, even further than the advances in regulation material.

We hope that this will be a useful tool that contributes to the defense of human rights and the eradication of one of the most tolerated and silenced human rights violations as such is the violence exercised against women.

Summaries of Jurisprudence: Health and Reproductive Rights

CEJIL is delighted to present a new book to its collection of Tools for the Protection of Human Rights: Summaries of Jurisprudence, this time dedicated to Health and Reproductive Rights.

The human rights protection bodies recognize the access to medical care, including reproductive health, as a basic right. Nonetheless, the decisions included in this volume illustrate some of the grave deficiencies in the effective enjoyment of these rights, directly affecting women’s right to choose regarding maternity, accessing health information, or to be respected in their autonomy and privacy, among others.

These pages compile decisions and judgments that constitute more relevant jurisprudence in relation to health and reproductive rights. We hope that this book will be a useful tool that contributes to the defense of those rights.
