Disappearances in the Post-Transition Era in Latin America

Edited by Karina Ansolabehere, Barbara A. Frey, and Leigh A. Payne

Proceedings of the British Academy

  • The volume is organised in three clear parts: theoretical framework, country case studies, and tools, allowing readers to focus on what most interests them
  • The theoretical framing for the volume links contemporary disappearances with certain logics that emerged in the authoritarian and armed conflict periods and continue today
  • Each case study is introduced by a personal story of disappearance, followed by analyses
  • The 'Tools' section sets out best practices used by civil society groups and non-governmental organizations to address the rights of victims for truth, justice, reparations, and guarantees of non-repetition
