Annual Report 2022
The annual report of the IACHR is an instrument of reference and institutional transparency that compiles the human rights situation and presents the advances and challenges that have occurred in the region.
We present information on the progress and achievements of the work of the IACHR through the different mechanisms. The annual report also includes a regional overview and follow-up on recommendations, as well as information on how the institutional budget is integrated.
Petition and Case System
The petition and case system is a unique human rights protection mechanism for achieving justice and reparations, combating impunity, and implementing structural measures in the Americas.
By filing a petition with the IACHR, people who have suffered human rights violations can obtain measures of justice and comprehensive reparation for these violations.
Data and stages in the petition and case mechanism
The IACHR’s friendly settlement mechanism generates opportunities for dialogue between petitioning parties and States to reach agreements that establish measures of reparation for the victims of human rights violations and society as a whole.

Impacts of the IACHR on access to justice
The IACHR took part in 52 hearings at the IA Court
These included a total of 34 hearings at the IA Court regarding contentious cases being processed
Contentious cases are cases in wich a State is accused of violating any of the rights established in the American Convention on Human Rights.
When participating in the hearings before the IA Court, the IACHR presents its opinions and conclusions on each case, reiterates the responsibilities of States to guarantee human rights, and elaborates on inter-American standards, which allows the IA Court to expand its jurisprudence and pronounce on the case.
