Speaker information

Dr Thomas Pegram, UCL Global Governance Institute, Thomas Pegram is Lecturer in Global Governance and the Deputy Director of the Global Governance Institute (GGI) at University College London.

Formal human rights institutions can provide powerful venues for affecting the outcome of political processes. National human rights institutions (NHRIs) have emerged across countries and at different times as central players in enhancing citizen scrutiny, participation and state human rights obligations. However, as this study highlights, while some Latin American NHRIs have successfully advanced human rights protection, others have actively sought to undermine human rights protections.

Dr Thomas Pegram will present a modified Principal-Agent framework to explain this variation which places the spotlight on two dimensions.
