Yesterday afternoon during the Fourth Plenary Session held in Washington, D.C., the 48th General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) elected two new members to the Board of Directors of the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA). They are Jenny Murphy of the United States and Patricia Pérez of Chile. The members-elect will serve from 2019 to 2021.

 

This election is particularly significant in the context of JSCA’s Gender Equity Policy, the most important institutional change to occur over the past few years. JSCA Executive Director Jaime Arellano stated, “We at JSCA believe that in order to effectively, comprehensively and equitably fulfill our mission and goals, the gender perspective must be incorporated into the Center’s organizational culture and all of its institutional activity. This includes our staffing, processes, activities and the development of our research, projects and training programs.”

JSCA presents the second volume in the series Challenging the Inquisition: Ideas and Proposals for Criminal Procedure Reform in Brazil. The Portuguese-language publication is one of the results of the Brazilian Training Program on Criminal Procedure Reform, which JSCA executed with various Brazilian institutions. It brings together ideas from various criminal justice system stakeholders, contextualizing the situation of Brazil within Latin American justice systems and identifying steps that the country could take. Brazil is the only nation in the region that maintains an inquisitorial criminal justice system rather than an adversarial one.
