This chapter compares the institutional paths taken by the Southern Cone societies of Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay to confront the legacy of human rights violations. It explains how and under what contextual circumstances each country has followed a different path in treating its own legacy of repression. This differentiation is attributed to factors including the differences in social and political traditions, the specific institutional mechanisms adopted by the political leaders, and the balance of forces between political and social actors.
