In the last decades, many countries in Latin America underwent a transition from dictatorship to democracy. Truth commissions were an essential instrument of uncovering politically motivated crimes and serious human rights violations. However, in many cases truth came without justice, perpetrators were not held accountable, and the reparation policy was rather restrictive. Susan Flämig and Martin Leiner address the issue from a transdisciplinary perspective and focus on the past shaped by fierce conflicts but also by attempts of fostering reconciliation. They also look at reconciliation still to come.
