In 2017, a coalition coordinated by CESR and comprised of Asociación Civil por la Igualdad y la Justicia (ACIJ), Dejusticia, Fundar, Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales (CELS), Instituto de Estudos Socioeconômicos (INESC) and International Budget Partnership (IBP), sent a briefing to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), indicating the relevance of fiscal policies for reducing poverty and human rights violations in the Americas. Drawing on this briefing, the IACHR later included a special section in its report on Poverty and Human Rights in the Americas, analyzing fiscal policies and recognizing their centrality to its own agenda.
