This chapter discusses the move towards national reconciliation in the Southern Cone and the disruptive effects of the legacy of human rights violations. The legacy of human violations threatened to become a course of renewed polarization and destabilization under the new democratic governments of Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay. In this context, national reconciliation policies were proposed and a series of public aftershocks emerged around the significance and implication of the past repressive governments. The debate on the socio-political transformations of the public sphere was dominated by discussion on the principles upon which to build a consolidated democracy and this had practical consequences for the realignment of social and political forces.
