Since the 1980s, many Latin American societies have struggled to deal with the legacies of violence and human rights abuses in the recent past. While extensive, the scholarly literature on transitional justice and historical memory remains dominated by the Southern Cone. This event will explore these themes in two less studied cases, place contemporary debates in Brazil, Mexico and Peru in historical and regional perspective, and consider future prospects for truth-telling and justice.
