The impact of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Chile

El impacto de la Comisión de Verdad y Reconciliación en Chile

The book takes a long-term look at the work of the Chilean CNVR, and asks how and to what extent this commission contributed and continues to contribute to the development of transitional justice measures and how its relationship with subsequent events is established over time. . The book argues, contrary to the opinion and expectations of those who considered it to have had limited success, that in the long run the Chilean CNVR played an important role in enabling justice and ethical and institutional transformation in Chile. With the benefit of historical perspective, this book concludes that, in general, the impact of truth commissions must be carefully studied in the context of the Chilean experience.
