In this second chapter of Part II of the book (Truth and Justice in Transition), an examination is made of how the issues of truth and justice evolved in the transitional period (1988–90) in Chile. The aim of this chapter (and the previous one which examines the same issues in Uruguay) is to show how the political nature and dynamics of the transition and negotiations shaped the ability of the political elite to pursue truth and justice in the democratic period, since the transitional period is seen to represent a critical juncture during which the stage is often set for what comes in the democratic period. The different sections of the chapter are: Una Salida Constitucional: A Defiant General and a United Opposition; Accounting for the Success of Truth and Justice Policies in the Democratic Period; and Conclusions: Preparing for Limited Confrontation and Accommodation – in the post-transition democratic period.

Keywords:   Chile, confrontation, democratization, justice, success, transition to democracy, truth and justice
