  • 12/12/17 Screening Documentary ‘Burden of Peace’




    The Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation (CEDLA) and the Faculty of Law of the UvA are organizing a screening of the documentary ‘Burden of Peace’. This documentary tells the impressive story of Claudia Paz y Paz, the first woman to lead the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Guatemala. The country that has been ravaged for years by a devastating civil war, in which nearly 200,000 Mayan Indians were systematically massacred, is today one of the most violent countries in the world. Claudia starts a frontal attack against corruption, drug gangs and impunity and does what everyone had held to be impossible up until then: she arrests former dictator Efrain Rios Montt on charges of genocide. His conviction becomes the first conviction for genocide in a national court in the world history.

    Directly after the movie, there will be a Q&A with director Sander Wirken
    moderated by Dr. Barbara Hogenboom (CEDLA).
    WHEN: 12 December
    TIME: 17.00 – 19.00 hours
    VENUE: CREA
    Entrance: Students and alumni for free, others 5 euro

  • NEW CEDLA CUADERNO

    The Political Influence
    of the Latin American Military
    Dirk Kruijt

    Latin America has been and maybe still is the continent of political soldiers and military politicians. In this essay I follow the military’s professional evolution, its involvement in society and politics, and the dual engagement in external and internal security. Since colonial times the Latin American armies were and are in charge of confronting external threats and internal enemies. READ IT
