DE OLIVEIRA MAZZUOLI, Valerio. The Inter-American human rights protection system: Structure, functioning and effectiveness in Brazilian law. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.1, pp.194-215. ISSN 1996-2096.

The article provides a brief background to the Inter-American system of human rights and its monitoring organs, the Inter-American Commission and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. It then focuses on the relationship between the two institutions, looking in particular at how cases are instituted before the Court. Against this background, the process of ensuring effective domestic enforcement of the Court's judgments in Brazil is investigated with reference to two decided cases and a draft Bill pending before Congress.
