La recuperación de la memoria histórica desde la perspectiva jurídica e internacional


  • Capellà i Roig, Margalida


In the present debate on the recovery of the so-called "historical memory", the contemporary International Law can contribute to criteria and mechanisms to confront a process of political transition in Spain that cannot be considered finished while the right to truth, repair and justice of all the victims of the civil war and the Francoism is not recognized. This article briefly explains the notion and the mechanisms of transitional justice from the international practice developed in processes of transition from war to peace or from an authoritarian regime to a democratic one. It tries to demonstrate that the Spanish case is not unique and that International Law has a consolidated set of solutions that could be applied to obtain a right and lasting reconciliation that allows to surpass an anomalous situation that subsists more than seventy years after the beginning of the Spanish Civil War.
