LANIC Newsroom
LANIC Electoral Observatory
"Between now (October 1999) and the end of 2000, thirteen Latin American and Caribbean countries will hold presidential or legislative elections, or both. These processes represent important steps in further consolidating electoral democracy in a region where elections had been held in abeyance by military dictatorships or overshadowed by ongoing civil strife. They will likely bring about important changes in the political life of the countries where they take place. The purpose of the LANIC Electoral Observatory is to provide scholars, journalists, policy makers and the general public a convenient, easy-to-use set of on-line resources to follow and understand these electoral processes."

Peru in The Eye of the Storm
Peru has had a disturbing legacy of political violence and human rights violations. As a result, the National Security Archive has recently published forty-one declassified U.S. government documents, detailing human rights violations over the past 20 years in Peru. The documents record a progression of events through three Peruvian regimes (Presidents Fernando Belaunde, Alan Garcia, and Alberto Fujimori), highlighting key human rights abuses committed by government security forces and Peruvian insurgents.
