This edited volume brings together well-established and emerging human rights scholars and practitioners to discuss the central challenges in the areas of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex (LGBTI) rights, torture and indigenous rights in the Americas. The theoretical and empirical contributions centre on the most recent cases decided by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights against the Chilean state, namely: a) Atalo Riffo and daughters v. Chile; b) García Lucero et al. v. Chile; and c) Norín Catrimán et al. (Leaders, members and activist of the Mapuche indigenous people v. Chile. Using different methodological approaches such as case studies, legal analysis, and regional applications, the book summarises these three cases, among others, and reflects on the importance of the Inter-American Human Rights System, how it is developing, and the human rights improvements it has led to in the region.
