RJ Article Acuña, Carlos H.. Transitional Justice in Argentina and Chile: A Never-Ending Story?
The object of this chapter is to analyze and explain the particular dynamics assumed by the political process related to the treatment of military human rights violations during the transitions to democracy in Argentina and Chile. This work explains why the actors did what they did as a function of their objectives and the political and institutional constraints they encountered. It analyzes how and why the articulation of the different strategies shaped the political process and, finally, the significance of these processes for the type of democratic regime that emerged in each of these two Latin American countries.

RJ Article Price, Marty D.. Restorative Justice Speaking Tour in Argentina and Chile.
n May, 2006 I had the unique opportunity to spend two weeks on speaking tours of Argentina and Chile as a restorative justice expert. Initially, I was invited by the Argentine Ministry of Justice. The Chilean Ministry of Justice requested that my tour be extended to Chile after they learned I would be coming to Argentina. The tour was sponsored and paid for by the U.S. Department of State’s Democracy and Human Rights International Information Program. The tour program was called, "Restorative Justice: Practices and Pitfalls - How to Make it Work." (excerpt)
RJ Article Walling, Carrie Booth and Sikkink, Kathryn. Argentina's Contribution to Global Trends in Transitional Justice
"In addition to discussing the case of Argentina, we will also sketch out some broad international and regional trends in the area of transitional justice. These trends make clear that dramatic changes have occured in the world with regard to accountability for past human rights abuses. This trend is what Lutz and Sikkink have called "The Justice Cascade" -a rapid shift towards new norms and practices of providing more accountability for human rights violations. The case of Argentina is particularly interesting because far from being a passive participant in or recipient of this justice cascade, Argentina was very often an instigator of particular new mechanisms within the cascade. The case illlustrates the potential for global human rights protagonism at the periphery of the system. The Argentine case also supports the general thesis of the volume that multiple transitional justice mechanisms are frequently used in a single case." (exceprt)
RJ Article Guembe, Maria Jose. Economic Reparations for Grave Human Rights Violations: The Argentinean Experience
"Since its return to democracy, Argentina has made great efforts to address the legacy of the last military dictatorship. This chapter presents a complete overview of the Argentinean policy of economic reparations for the victims of human rights violations committed between 1975 and 1983, including the beneficiaries, the crimes for which victims received reparations, the amounts paid, and the forms of payment. The study also analyzes the motivations for redressing the victims, from both national and international perspectives. It identifies the positions adopted by the different actors involved in the measures, especially the State and human rights organizations. The latter gained undeniable legitimacy by representing the victims and had consolidated into a group that has become the main actor on economic, legal, and political questions that have arisen during the process of designing and implementing the reparations policy."

RJ Article Price, Marty D.. Restorative Justice Speaking Tour in Argentina and Chile.
For two weeks this past May, I visited Argentina and Chile to speak about restorative justice at the request of each country’s Ministry of Justice. As a pioneer in the restorative justice field, I felt confident that I could provide valuable expertise, experience and resources. But, I quickly realized there was more to present than one person could bring. (excerpt)
RJ Article Riva, Ricardo. Programa de Mediación Penal Juvenil: Provincia de Neuquén, República Argentina
En la provincia de Neuquén, República Argentina, se ha creado a partir de la firma de un Convenio de colaboración celebrado entre el Tribunal Superior de Justicia y el Ministerio de Gobierno y Seguridad un programa que aplica la mediación en materia penal juvenil. Este mecanismo alternativo de resolución del conflicto penal permite obtener respuestas más satisfactorias para el infractor, para la víctima y para la sociedad en su conjunto. Resumen del Centro de Estudios de Justicia de las Americas, www.cejamericas.org.
Valiosa alternativa para enfrentar el fenómeno de la violencia juvenil
Del artículo en El Día: Los enfrentamientos de jóvenes que, hace poco tiempo, se atacaron con palos y piedras en el centro platense, fueron tan sólo algunas de las evidencias más visibles de una violencia adolescente que, como creciente fenómeno social, se ha venido imponiendo en los últimos años y que ha tenido no sólo a las calles como escenarios para exhibirse.
