The International Studies Public Forum (ISPF) presents

"The Politics of Reconciliation: Truth, Reparation and Justice in Chile, 1989-2013"
with Elizabeth Lira, Professor of Psychology and Ethics, Universidad Alberto Hurtado, Santiago, Chile and Brian Loveman, Professor Emeritus, Political Science, San Diego State University

Thursday, November 7, 2013
5:00-6:20 p.m.
Social Science Plaza A, Room 1100

Professors Loveman and Lira will discuss the historical patterns of political conflict and reconciliation in Chile, focusing on policies regarding massive human rights violations by the military government (1973-1990) in the transition from dictatorship to elected civilian governments after 1990. Special attention will be given to the tension between a history of political amnesties and impunity for perpetrators of human rights violations and demands for truth, reparation for the victims, and justice (prosecution and punishment) of those responsible for murder and torture.
