Our PhD Researcher and IRC Scholar Beatrice Canossi recently concluded her professional visit at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (Costa Rica). 

During her three months as ‘professional visitor’ at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, Beatrice worked alongside practitioners expanding her knowledge on the jurisprudence and functioning of this key regional human rights body. She had the chance to participate in the court’s hearings, deepening her understanding of the Inter-American system and working on court cases. She is grateful for this excellent opportunity and to all the staff of the Court which have welcomed her with professionalism, creating an exciting and fulfilling work environment. During her time at the Court Beatrice had the possibility to witness the pivotal role played by the Court at a regional and international level. She was particularly impressed by its work interpreting the American Convention on Human Rights as a living instrument to fulfil the Court’s important role in protecting human rights within the region.
