Abstract:

Over the past decade the increased prominence of international human rights tribunals has posed a challenge to skeptics who believe that human rights institutions are nothing but paper tigers. Today, states increasingly comply with the tribunals' rulings, even when that means changing their domestic policies and practices. In this paper, I compare the experiences of three states--Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia--in complying with two Inter-American human rights tribunals. I suggest that we can understand compliance as a costly yet credible signal states send to domestic and international audiences about their commitment to human rights. In the absence of domestic institutions, cheap talk persists, but for those states that have strong domestic institutions, compliance is both credible and potentially costly. This finding has implications for the future of international human rights adjudication and for the literature on compliance with international institutions more generally.
