Abstract

This chapter introduces the Inter-American Human Rights System (IAHRS or ‘the System’) in two sections. The first part briefly analyses the System’s current state, including its achievements and the many challenges it faces. Reference is made to the central issues that confront the IAHRS both today and in the near future. Secondly, the chapter describes the relationship between Chile and the System, especially outlining certain comparative perspectives between Chile and the IAHRS, which may be helpful in thinking of Chile not only as an isolated island cut off from the rest of Latin America, but as part of a regional human rights system.
