Final Acts: A Guide to Preserving the Records of Truth Commissions

Jul 07, 2011
Final Acts is a guide to questions of law, politics, physical preservation, and access regarding materials generated by truth commissions. For example, how do the records relate to the law that created the commission? Who owns the evidence? Are there political constraints on the preservation of, or access to, some records? Does the country have an institution professionally capable of maintaining the records? Final Acts also describes the truth commissions that have completed their work so far and the disposition, or in some cases the loss, of their records. More about this title can be found on the Wilson Center Press website. more

Di Tella, Torcuato y Kirchner, Néstor. Después del derrumbe. Teoría y práctica de la Argentina que viene. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2003

Jul 07, 2011
Después del derrumbe, es tiempo de construir puentes de plata entre la dirigencia y la sociedad, a partir de una renovación política que oxigene las instituciones y formule un nuevo proyecto de país, que le permita a la Argentina encontrar su destino como Nación. Torcuato Di Tella, indaga al dirigente que considera capaz de articular un nuevo espacio político en el que confluyan la ´´izquierda racional´´ y el ´´peronismo decente´´, para dar vida a un ´´animal´´ con cuerpo peronista y patas extrapartidarias, como hiciera con éxito Juan Domingo Perón en 1945, uniendo socialistas, conservadores, sindicalistas, intelectuales, católicos e independientes. Néstor Kirchner, reflexiona acerca de la crisis y la oportunidad de dejar atrás los años en que la política estuvo al servicio de los mercados -razón principal de su descrédito y base de la corrupción para volver a convertirla en síntesis del interés general. A través de las páginas de este libro, Kirchner y Di Tella intentan acortar distancias entre la ´´torre de marfil´´ del observador científico y el campo de batalla donde el dirigente político libra su combate y se ´´embarra´´, para abordar un amplio y profundo debate sobre la Argentina que viene. more
