Karen Atala v. Chile: the ICJ testified before the Inter-American Court of human rights

The Senior Legal Advisor for the SOGI Project provided expert testimony at the Inter-American Court’s hearing in Bogota, Colombia.

The case concerns the decision by the Supreme Court of Chile to remove Karen Atala’s three daughters from her custody because she had begun living with another woman.

The expert testimony focused on the best interest of the child principle and how courts have held that discrimination on the basis of parental sexual orientation violates this fundamental principle of child custody decisions.
