Dr Francesca Lessa launches her new book ¿Justicia o impunidad? in Uruguay

Dr Lessa is in Montevideo to present her new book ¿Justicia o impunidad? Cuentas pendientes en el Uruguay post-dictadura published by Penguin Random House Uruguay this month. The book analyses Uruguay’s trajectory in confronting the legacy of human rights violations committed during the dictatorship (1973-1985) since returning to democracy three decades ago. Her research focuses on themes of justice, impunity and memory in the country. Dr Lessa has been interviewed by several radios (AM LIBRE, Radio Sarandi, CX30 and Radio Sodre) as well as magazines and Uruguay National TV Channel Canal 5.
