Book Launch: Beyond Words

Date/Time: 30 November 2022, 14:00-15:00
Venue: Zoom 

Join us to celebrate the launch of Beyond Words (Volume I and II) about truth commission recommendations in Latin America. 

Truth commission recommendations are critical to their legacies, yet there is little research examining their fates. Based on fieldwork that is unprecedented in scope, this two-volume project provides the first systematic study of the formulation and implementation of the recommendations of 13 Latin American Truth Commissions. 

Beyond Words Vol. I examines the variations in truth commission recommendations across 13 Latin American cases, while Beyond Words Vol. 2 is a unique collection of 11 Latin American country studies. More about the books here. 

In this webinar, the contributors and editors will reflect on the main findings across the case countries, and context-specific country analysis.
