Abstract: What would be the performance of the United States of America in the Organization of American States (OAS) in the accused position by human rights violations? The inquiry was starting point of the empirical research, presented in the article, about the accusations against the United States of America to the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights IACHR/OAS. The complaints were analyzed from the perspective of institutions and collective mobilization, thus emphasizing the character, regulatory and strategic at the same time, dynamic and relational, of human rights. Although the IACHR does not exert binding effect on national authorities, tensions in domestic politics has been generated by positive answers to the growing activism of citizens in submission of complaints, since the 1990s, in challenging the behavior of U.S. governmental institutions.
