The Inter-American Court of Human Rights
Here you will find official data and available research data on the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR).
Judicial Behavior and Compliance in the IACtHR Database
Boyum, Naurin and Stiansen have compiled a dataset on judicial behavior and compliance in the IACtHR. The data includes information on 145 decisions of the Court, the votes and separate opinions of the judges, as well as the judgment’s case history, procedures before the Court, alleged violation by the Inter American Commission of Human Rights, victim data, preliminary objections filed by the respondent state, and amicus curiae briefs. The dataset builds on the case summaries produced by the Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. The codebook and the dataset will be available at this site spring 2017. Naurin and Stiansen 2017 use the data to investigate the impact of dissenting opinions on compliance with court rulings.
The Inter-American Court of Human Rights Project database and journal
The Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review’s project called the Inter-American Court of Human Rights Project database and journal seeks to increase access to decisions rendered by the IACtHR. The project produces and publishes detailed summaries of cases rendered by the IACtHR. At present there are 145 case reports, and more will be produced during the coming year. Summaries include descriptions of case facts, procedural history, merits, and states’ compliance with the IACtHR's judgment.
The Compliance with Human Rights Tribunals Dataset
Courtney Hillebrecht (2014) has a dataset on Compliance with Human Rights Tribunals (CHRT), including information on states’ compliance with obligations handed down by the European Court of Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The dataset seeks to provide data that reflects the fact that states comply with human rights tribunals in part: they comply with some obligations but not with others. Codebook and dataset are available at Hillebrecht’s webpage.
