Last Friday, a validation workshop was held in La Paz, Bolivia on a study of the application of protective measures in that country from the perspective of the dynamic produced during hearings. The Supreme Court requested that the study be conducted in the context of a Judicial Branch project supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA), an international agency that has studied the topic of protective measures, was asked to carry out the study. The Center and other local organizations have carried out several studies on pretrial detention in Bolivia. This new initiative focused on protective measures hearings, which are understood as the main spaces of action of the justice system.
