Shaping the Public Sphere and the Legacy of Human-Rights Violations
This chapter examines the restructuring of the public sphere in Southern Cone societies in democratic terms after the end of the rule of military governments in Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile. This restructuring involved the recognition of the centrality of legal principles or basic human and civil rights, and of the possibility of autonomous actions by citizens. After this, all the issues suppressed during military rule came to the fore, triggering confrontation and debate around the legacy of human rights violations, attainment of public knowledge, and accountability.
