The Transformation of Human Rights Fact-Finding

Oxford University Press

This chapter is divided into three sections. The first section analyzes the three primary dimensions of the clinical context that reproduce unequal relationships between the legal academia of the Global North and Global South, in which law schools and organizations of the North are accorded greater credibility and greater leadership roles in fact-finding missions. In order to illustrate these arguments the second section analyzes a paradigmatic type of project led by international human rights clinics: fact-finding missions. Finally, the third section presents and justifies the three normative criteria that should guide the relations between the clinics of the Global North and South.

Keywords:   North-South, subordination, legal academia, human rights clinics, normative criteria
