IACHR in crisis: Strong Support to Public Statement

Facing the crisis affecting the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH), the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA) and Observatorio Ciudadano Chile have prepared a public statement and call organisations to endorse the demand to reach a solution to the actual crisis. 

Causes of the current crisis

For Nancy Yáñez, co-director of  Observatorio Ciudadano de Chile, the crisis of the Commission ‘is not only financial, but fundamentally political, which ultimately turns vulnerable a fundamental element of democracy, which is the defence of human rights’.

According to the lawyer, the crisis is caused by an ‘action deliberately taken by some States' in response to the effectiveness of the inter-American human rights system, which has challenged the neoliberal and extractive model prevailing in the countries.

"The Commission has been fundamental in the democratic transition of the countries in the region after dictatorships, promoted by a strong support of  the member states, but the attitude changes when talking about extractive industry and its impacts on communities, withdrawing their contributions and plunging the Commission into the current crisis', she added.

Gaston Chillier, Executive Director of  Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales (CELS) in Argentina also highlighted the role of the Commission ‘in the context of dictatorships’. He pointed out 'this is not the first crisis of the Commission, but  it is certainly the most serious’.

Chiller also recognized the broad agenda of issues addressed by the Commission on the topic of freedom of expression, migration, indigenous peoples, ‘all in which IACHR remains a key institution for the exercise of human rights’.

The poor contributions of the Member States

According to the representative of CELS in Argentina, the actual crisis ‘does not speak well of the States of the region, since the contributions delivered are very poor and ultimately makes the Commission dependant on international agencies or European institutions’.

He also warned that ‘a Commission weakened it is not good for the people of the region and their human rights’.  Subsequently he called on the States ‘to express their support or not to the functioning of the system’.

María Jose Veramendi, representative of Asociación Interamericana para la Defensa del Ambiente (AIDA), stressed that the suspension of international cooperation’s funds, mainly European, 'will desintegrate groups with specific tasks, such as the one being responsible of deciding on precautionary measures’.

On this note, she also described as unacceptable the fact that the member states do not want to finance a system they have created and that ‘today only 6 percent of the budget OF THE Organisation of American States (OAS) is allocated to this protection system’.

Finally, José Aylwin, co-director of the Observatorio Ciudadano de Chile, said that the commitment shown by President Michelle Bachetet to fullfill contribution is not enough, taking into consideration that Chile’s contributions have been reduced compared to previous years. On this regard, he expressed his support to search for a permanent funding mechanism. On the other hand, he warned that ‘Chile has a deficit not only of a financial nature regarding this protection system, but also regarding the Commission’s judgments that have not been complied’. 


A recent announcement by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) explains that it is experiencing a serious financial crisis that is forcing it to suspend all country visits planned for this year plus the hearings scheduled for July and October. It will also have to cut its workforce by 40%.
And yet more serious still is the fact that this crisis is not due to management problems attributable to the IACHR. The crisis has arisen because the Member States of the Organization of American States (OAS) have substantially reduced the amount of their voluntary contributions to this body or have stopped contributing altogether, for reasons that are fundamentally political.

Canada suspended its contributions to the IACHR under its last conservative administration and, to date, despite the change in government, has not yet reinstated them. Colombia, another important donor, has also stopped contributing. Argentina made essential contributions to the IACHR aimed at holding the Argentine state and its agents to account for the mass human rights violations committed in the country under the dictatorship. However, as the IACHR began to tackle other human rights issues, Argentina’s contribution began to decline, and currently stands at 10% its previous amount. Mexico, for its part, is only willing to provide earmarked funds destined exclusively to financing the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) in order to clarify the events that occurred during the disappearance of 43 young students from Ayotzinapa. In 2015, Chile reduced its contribution to the IACHR by half in comparison with the previous year. The remaining OAS Member States are in arrears in their payment of their permanent quotas to the organisation, which means it is unable to transfer all the regular funding allocated to the IACHR for its operations.

There is, in our opinion, a structural problem because a permanent fund is needed to guarantee the effective running of the IACHR in such a way that will effectively protect and defend human rights in the region. The IACRH’s operations were in the past guaranteed via the contributions of observer states and international cooperation agencies but these have also reduced their donations. In the context of the current financial crisis, this means that some 40% of the workforce who were hired with funds from these donors will have to be laid off.

Unfortunately, the human rights situation in the region is deteriorating. Enforced disappearances of people, violence against human rights defenders and their criminalisation, the dispossession of the territories, lands and natural resources of indigenous peoples, the growing precarity of indigenous peoples’, peasants’ and local communities’ subsistence economies are all an inescapable reality. The most complex human rights problems, in previous decades attributable to the proliferation of dictatorships on the continent, now have their origins largely in the impact of the extractive industry, particularly in Latin America. This extractive industry has been supported by States in order to preserve a globalised economic model based on a free market in natural resources or commodities.

Under these circumstances, the Inter-American Human Rights System has undoubtedly played an essential role in safeguarding human rights in the Americas. The IACHR and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IHR Court) are irreplaceable in terms of protecting the rights of individuals, indigenous peoples and human rights defenders, who are experiencing systematic violations of their human rights against a backdrop of growing violence and threats to the lives and integrity of individuals and peoples across the continent, all of which is taking place with the tacit consent of the States and their institutions.

In light of the above, the signatory organisations to this statement are making a vigorous appeal to all OAS Member States to change their approach and explicitly demonstrate their democratic vocation, expressed through their full and unwavering commitment to protecting and defending the human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals and peoples. They need to be aware that the effective implementation of human rights requires mechanisms – national and international – through which to be able to denounce their violation, such that the victims have access to justice and reparation.

The extent of the IACHR’s financial crisis, caused by the OAS Member States, is making it unable to fulfil its mandate and is thus depriving the citizens and peoples of this continent of democratic institutional frameworks through which to fully enjoy their rights, creating an intolerable situation.
We are therefore calling on all OAS Member States to create an emergency fund with which to stabilise the operations of the IACHR so that it is able to fulfil its timetable of activities for 2016. We also urge the Member States to establish a permanent and regular fund at the next OAS General Assembly aimed at guaranteeing full implementation of the mandate of the bodies of the Inter-American Human Rights System.
