Sobre el sujeto-víctima : configuraciones de una ciudadanía limitada
One of the virtues conferred upon the transitional justice in the countries where it has been implemented is its capacity to strengthen institutions and democracy. One of the ways to strengthen democracy and indemnify victims is to encourage their participation in transitional justice processes and other public policies intended to assure their rights. Democratic participation of people, however, is mediated by the quality granted to participating subjects. The objective of this article is to propose the need for having a debate on the consequences brought by the way “victims” are conceived during their participation within reparation processes. Finally, this document puts into consideration some points that could be part of the debate on the conceptualization of victims and their participation.
