9 February 2017
On January 26, 1992 El Salvador's government signed a peace accord with the country's querrillas to end the 12-year conflict that caused the death of 75,000 people. The agreement, which included a general amnesty and a commission to investigate the atrocities committed, then became a model for similar conflicts in the region.
To comemorate the 25th anniversary of the accord, the LSE Su Latin American Society hosted a public lecture about the agreement, its problems and limitations, the implications of the declaration of unconstitutionality of the amnesty, and the current situation of the country.
