Salvador Herencia-Carrasco

Salvador is director of the Human Rights Clinic of the Human Rights Research and Education Centre and part-time professor at the Section de Droit Civil at the University of Ottawa. Salvador is a Ph.D. candidate in Law, researching how a Third World Approaches in International Law (TWAIL) approach could benefit victims litigating cases on Business & Human Rights within the Inter-American Human Rights System.

Before joining the Ph.D. program, Salvador has worked as legal adviser to the Andean Commission of Jurists, as senior jurisdictional counsel to the Constitutional Court of Peru and chief human rights legal adviser to the Peruvian Department of Justice and Human Rights. In December 2017, Salvador was appointed to be one of the foreign experts that will provide technical assistance to the Special Jurisdiction for Peace in Colombia, created under the peace agreement celebrated with the FARC in November 2016.

Salvador's research focuses on the Inter-American Human Rights System, Business & Human Rights, TWAIL, International Criminal Law and transitional justice. He joins the Afronomicslaw team as contributing editor, hoping to foster the participation of Latin American and Global South scholars on critical International Law discussions. He can be contacted in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
