Institutional Responses to Discrimination at the National Level in Latin America: An Overview
MetadataShow full item record
The report examines how Latin American states have responded to calls to action such as those made in the Durban Declaration to establish national institutions with strong mandates to prevent and eliminate discrimination. The institutions examined are an exceedingly heterogeneous group, but they share a fundamental similarity is that all are state institutions that, in one form or another, address issues of discrimination or promote the interests of groups who have traditionally been affected by discrimination. To facilitate the analysis of such a diverse group of institutions, the report has been divided into sections according the three institutional models that the authors have constructed.
