(More) On Reparations

15 Jul

After writing last week on the process of reparation to the victims of the Peruvian political violence and their relatives, I felt that there was still a lot ground to cover on the issue. Following the publication of my blog post, I had an interesting conversation on reparation with a colleague, and I thought his insights on the issue were worth sharing.

Ricardo Alvarado is a historian who has been dedicated to human rights work and activism since 1998. An avid blogger, he represents a dissident voice within the Peruvian human rights movement and is critical of the transitional justice process initiated by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Here are his thoughts on the importance of reparation, the recent Supreme Decree (see my previous post), the attitude of the government on the issue, and the actual state of the human rights movement in Peru.
