Contents Problems of transitional truth and justice in comparative perspective and human rights violations under military rule in Uruguay and Chile -- Truth and justice in transition -- Truth and justice under successor democratic regimes -- Assessing truth and justice in Uruguay and Chile : the road to democratic consolidation?
Summary Alexandra de Brito's insightful new study analyses the attempts by Chile and Uruguay to resolve the human rights violations conflicts inherited from military dictatorships. The author focuses on how post-transitional democratic governments handled demands for official recognition of the truth about these violations, and for punishment of those guilty of committing or ordering them. Alexandra de Brito sheds light on the political conditions which permitted, or prevented, the policies of truth-telling and justice under these successor regimes
