Paradox and Temporality

Paradox and Temporality

(p.153) Conclusion Paradox and Temporality
Feminist and Human Rights Struggles in Peru

Pascha Bueno-Hansen

University of Illinois Press

This book has addressed the paradox of rights: the tension between the need for human rights law to document and prosecute violations and the inability of the human rights framework to address the full scope of harm. Since the roots of transitional justice grow out of international human rights law, this same paradox is manifested in transitional justice mechanisms, such as the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Committee (PTRC). The story of Rosa Cuchillo and her endless search for her daughter, who disappeared during the armed conflict, highlights the endurance of love, the importance of legal avenues to register human rights violations, and the central role played by human rights advocates. This conclusion discusses the structural, procedural, and methodological implications of the book's analysis of Peruvian feminist and human rights movements, the PTRC, and DEMUS's Manta project in terms of future transitional justice endeavors both within and outside of Peru.
