São Paulo, Brazil, April 20, 2022
The President of the Inter-American Court, Judge Ricardo C. Pérez Manrique, and Judge Rodrigo Mudrovitsch participated in the Seminar: "The Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the Protection of Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law: An Agenda for the XXI Century" ("Corte Interamericana de Direitos Humanos e proteção dos Direitos Humanos, da Democracia e do Estado de Direito: Uma Agenda para o Século XXI"), as part of the opening of the Course on Conventionality Control of the São Paulo School of Judges of the State’s Court of Justice, in which Magistrates will be trained on conventionality control and the case law of the Inter-American Court.
"National judges are the first response to the control of conventionality, as they are closest to the problem and have the necessary tools to be able to address situations effectively," said the President of the Inter-American Court.
“As an Inter-American Court, we are not oblivious to the 2030 Agenda, nor should national judges be. The crises resulting from climate change, migration, public safety and violence against women, among other major problems, need to be addressed from a perspective that integrates the Sustainable Development Goals. Approximately 90% of the Sustainable Development Goals have their source in International Law, particularly International Human Rights Law. They are two sides of the same coin”, highlighted the President.
