Erna Paris – The Problem of Political Amnesty

2010, Foreign Affairs
Presented By: Erna Paris

“When the past is pushed under the rug, it doesn’t just go away – it sits there until it comes up again and causes new problems for society.” Erna Paris discusses political amnesty and whether or not it is a useful tool. She argues that it does not work effectively, because the victims of human rights abuses never forget.
