Most of the first volume of Memory of Silence describes the emergence of a Guatemalan state that saw its primary function as counterinsurgency. At some length, it also discusses the role of external actors like the United States and Cuba in transforming Guatemala into a Cold War battleground.

The section concludes by charting the new lines of investigation this analysis opens. For the state, what needs explanation is the absolute contempt for juridical norms by the governments in power between and , who acted, with no obedience to the law, like absolute owners of the country and owners of the life and death of its men and women, with no respect for even the minimal rules of civilized human conduct. Within the CEH there was considerable uncertainty about whether this category was applicable to Guatemala.

La mémoire des disparitions en Argentine

As its findings showed, between and the military systematically wiped hundreds of indigenous villages off the map.

But the military, like its peers throughout Latin America, generally framed its enemy as international communism rather than a racial or ethnic group. The possibility of a genocide ruling thus seemed to turn on the question of whether those communities were truly committed to the insurgency or were simply the object of racial animus. Some CEH personnel argued against the ruling on the grounds that it obscured the political challenge the insurgency had represented for the state.

Setting up the ruling, the report notes that the perpetration of one or more acts that match the elements of the definition of genocide in the [UN] Convention, even if they are part of a wider policy whose principal aim is not the physical extermination of a group, may constitute the crime of genocide Genocidal acts exist when the end is political, economic, military, or of any other nature, but the means that are used to achieve this end are the total or partial extermination of a group.

The ruling reinstated the difference in quality between the responsibilities of the state and the insurgency that treating violence as a matter of quantities threatened to erase, opening avenues for trials in the process. Head commissioner Christian Tomuschat read its conclusions, culminating in the genocide ruling. The euphoria of those in the audience who had spent years demanding justice and the disagreeable surprise of those who had spent years ignoring those demands were palpable. Yet this moment of triumph was short-lived.

Four months later, a referendum seeking approval for constitutional changes needed to implement the peace agreements, including those on indigenous rights, was defeated on the strength of the No vote in non-indigenous areas. As elsewhere, the Cuban Revolution inspired Peruvian Leftists to take up arms, and like its Central American counterparts, the Peruvian military responded to guerrillas with violent repression.

Even after the mids, when the military moved to the Right, most organized sectors of the Left responded by increasing their stakes in 32 the democratic process, forming coalitions to participate in elections called for Sendero was founded in the s at Huamanga University in the provincial capital of the impoverished and mostly Quechua-speaking Ayacucho department.

This meant consolidating bases of support among the poorest peasants of the countryside in order to create revolutionary territories that would eventually encircle Lima, isolating the central government and causing it to collapse. Initially, peasants welcomed its attacks on rural Ayacuchan power-brokers.

L'histoire politique du Nunca Más

By the late s, even in Ayacucho, rondas or local patrol groups formed to combat Sendero incursions, effectively allying most peasants with the army. But the apparatus itself also presented certain difficulties for Peru.

In most Latin American countries, the militarized state provided a common enemy against which human rights activists and the Left could unite despite their potentially divergent understandings of violence. To the initial seven commissioners, a group including academics, lawyers, and a priest, were added five more--a monsignor, an evangelical pastor, and a retired military officer along with two more academics. Even so, the inclusion of reconciliation met with considerable backlash, with critics fearing it would mean extending forgiveness to terrorists or providing them with a public forum.

Its name and the public hearings it held for victims to receive apologies from perpetrators harkened outside the region to the South African model. Its efforts to situate itself within this history of human rights struggles, however, are juxtaposed to a firm insistence on Peruvian exceptionality.

The CVR also declined, however, to describe Sendero as terrorist. The culture of human rights and the international institutions that support it are fragile and rest on the consensus of States.

At some moments, as has occurred at the beginning of this century, fear of violence can generate a spiral of repercussions that affect international legality and reduce the possibilities of ensuring the rights of people and the citizens of the world.

Sendero, with its celebration of violence, its Sinophilia, and its Ayacuchan roots, was better suited to the new theory of terrorism as emanating from deep, Orientalized atavisms than most Latin American guerrilla groups. Yet Peruvian human rights activists, thanks to Fujimori, were also perhaps better acquainted than many with the consequences of a War on Terror that casts state violence as essential to the practice of democracy.

Sluka, pp. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, This gave the captors more freedom for torture or to kill the captives. Most disappeared people were eventually murdered and their bodies were either buried in unmarked graves, incinerated or disposed into the sea.

Relatives of the "disappeared" for many years following the abductions demanded solely for truth about the fate of the "disappeared".

Following this defeat, widespread coverage of the charges against the Argentine dictatorship spread through the press causing civil society organizations to demand that the parties responsible for the disappearances be brought forth and charged. A popular slogan used by these organizations was "juicio y castigo a los culpables" trial and punishment for the perpetrators.

In September , the regime then passed the "National Pacification Act" that granted impunity to the state by saying that all the action that was a result of the "antisubversive war" was then "extinguished".

This act prompted human rights organizations to demand that a commission would be formed by the government with the task of investigating state "terrorism".

National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons

The demands also included that the commission would include members from the House and the Congress and be advised by the human rights community. He emphasized that to prosecute the guilty parties responsible for the disappearances that three categories of people would have to be distinguished: those who planned and issued the orders, those who acted beyond the orders and those who carried out the orders strictly to the letter.

Human rights groups disagreed with this and though that the military courts would refuse to impose any legal sanctions on the prosecuted and believed that the only way to see justice was to have a "bicameral commission".

This way, the commission could manage an inquiry and then deliver a sentence and be able to subpoena testimony. CONADEP was created on December 15, by a presidential decree and was to report to both the executive branch and the legislators from both chambers.

It was allotted 6 months time to collect reports about the disappearances, look to see if they could discover what happened to the "disappeared", find abducted children, find evidence of attempts to conceal crimes and destroy evidence, after which they would refer this information to the court and issue a final report.London: Palgrave Macmillan, Amstuz, Mark R.

Between 15, and 30, opponents of the regime are believed to have died.


In and , these findings helped to convict several junta members of war crimes in proceedings that also saw seven guerrilla leaders indicted. All political parties were outlawed; potential institutional critics of the dictatorship were shuttered or turned over to the military; and tens of thousands of Chileans were forced into exile.

Its efforts to situate itself within this history of human rights struggles, however, are juxtaposed to a firm insistence on Peruvian exceptionality. Commissioners were also freed to make 10 their findings public across a range of popular media at moments when military resistance seemed to threaten the transition, interventions that endowed CONADEP with considerable moral authority.
