The advent of military government in Chile, following the coup of September 1973, stimulated a substantial emigration of political opponents seeking safety in exile overseas from persecution at home. This chapter details the extent of the emigration and the influence that exiled political parties managed to continue to exert on political life in Chile, and on the international relations of the Pinochet regime. The period under discussion provides a useful case study of the interplay between internal (consent) and external (control) factors in the struggle for democratization, and of such struggle as involving an attempted redefinition of the country's national and international identity. Even today, the links between Chilean political parties and their counterparts overseas remain active and influential, and Chilean politics will continue to have a strong international dimension.
