Washington D.C., May 31, 2018 —A group of four leading regional human rights experts has called on the Organization of American States (OAS) and its member states to strengthen their commitment to a more transparent selection of judges to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, while also reviewing the four candidates standing for election this June.

In a report presented on May 31 in Washington, D.C., the members of the 2018 Independent Panel on the Election of Inter-American Human Rights Judges note that despite some improvements in the process, OAS member states and the international community have yet to take action on a number measures to promote greater transparency in nomination and election processes with the aim of ensuring that only the very best candidates are nominated.
