Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the adoption of the present Provisional Measures of Protection, whereby the Inter-American Court of Human Rights orders that protection be extended to all persons who work at the Television Station "Globovisión" in Venezuela. We are ultimately before an obligation erga omnes of protection on the part of the State of all the persons under its jurisdiction, an obligation which grows in importance in a situation of permanent threat and insecurity, like that of the present case of the Television Station "Globovisión". The doctrinal and jurisprudential development of the obligations erga omnes of protection of the human person certainly contributes to the formation of a true international ordre public based on the respect for, and observance of, human rights, capable of securing a greater cohesion of the organized international community (the civitas maxima gentium), centred in the human person as the subject of international law.

Keywords: civitas maxima gentium; erga omnes; Globovisión; human rights; Inter-American court of Human Rights; Television Station; Venezuela
