Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book Judge Antônio A. Cançado Trindade: The Construction of a Humanized International Law and its chapters. Antônio has played many roles throughout his distinguished career. He has been serving as a Judge successively on two international courts, as President and Vice-President of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR), as an academic at numerous institutions, and as an educator in both Latin America and Europe, amongst other positions. In exploring the philosophical and historical foundations of international law, Antônio has always prioritised the experience of victims of human rights violations. It is perhaps this quality which distinguishes his current position at the International Court of Justice. Antônio emphasis on the individual's entitlement to justice can be perceived as a breath of fresh air in an institution which has traditionally been concerned with disputes of a solely inter-State nature.
