A Contribution from the HRGJ Working Group

“The Torture Report: Latin America’s Lessons for the United States,” NACLA Report on the Americas,

Professor Jo-Marie Burt, December 10, 2014

The release of the U.S. Senate report on torture raises the issue of accountability for those who sanctioned its use. Dr. Burt, who heads up the Human Rights & Global Justice Working Group, highlights lessons we might learn from Latin America’s experience of settling accounts with torturers.

Dr. Jo-Marie Burt has also been published by the Huffington Post online on this topic:
