Book Launch: "Law and Policy in Latin America: Transforming Courts, Institutions and Rights"

14 November 2017

In November 2017, Tom Gerald Daly, Co-Convenor of the Constitution Transformation Network, and his co-editor Pedro Fortes held a book launch event at the Latin American Centre, University of Oxford, for the edited collection Law and Policy in Latin America: Transforming Courts, Institutions, and Rights (Palgrave MacMillan, 2017, co-edtors: Larissa Boratti and Andrés Lleras Palacios).

The collection contains 19 chapters written by sociologists, lawyers, and political scientists on the transformations of courts, institutions and rights protection in Latin America, all of which stem from presentations at conferences at Oxford University and University College London (UCL) organised by the editors. Aimed at students and scholars interested in policymaking, public law, and development, the collection offers a comprehensive introduction to law and policy responses to contemporary problems in Latin America, such as human rights violations, regulatory dilemmas, economic inequality, and access to knowledge and medicine.
