Event Details

Decades after Guillermo O’Donnell and others denounced the dangers of the “(un) rule of law” in Latin America, judicial independence faces even greater challenges. In his talk, Professor Couso will provide an overview of this critical element of the rule of law, highlighting what’s at stake as well as advancing ideas on why judicial independence has proven so elusive in most of Latin America.

Javier Couso is Professor of Law at Universidad Diego Portales (Chile), and the Prince Claus Chair in Development and Equity at Utrecht University (Holland). He teaches socio-legal studies, comparative constitutional law, and human rights.
