Abstract:

"In 1991, after the end of the Pinochet regime, the newly-elected democratic government of Chile established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) to investigate and report on some of the worst human rights violations committed under the seventeen-year military dictatorship. The Chilean TRC was one of the first truth commissions established in the world. This book examines how the work of the Chilean TRC contributed to the transition to democracy and to subsequent developments in accountability and transformation in Chile. The book takes a long term view on the Chilean TRC, asking to what extent the truth commission contributed to the development of the subsequent human rights initiatives that were implemented, and explores how this relationship was established over time. Anita Ferrara challenges previous views that the Chilean TRC was of limited success, by arguing that over the longer term, the Chilean TRC played a key role as an enabler of justice and a means by which ethical and institutional transformation has occurred within Chile. With the benefit of this historical perspective, the book concludes that the impact of truth commissions in general needs to be carefully reviewed in light of the Chilean experience. This book will be of great interest and use to students and scholars of conflict resolution, criminal international law, and comparative legal systems in Latin America"--
