This chapter and the Conclusion to the book form Part IV (Assessing Truth and Justice in Uruguay and Chile: The Road to Democratic Consolidation?). The chapter is divided into two sections: the first assesses the two countries comparatively in the light of the preceding empirical studies, and the second assesses them in the light of an ‘ideal’ human rights’ policy. The underlying question in this analysis is whether everything possible was done after taking the political situation into account.
