Radiografía de una política de derechos humanos:los Estados Unidos frente a la Argentina

Listed author(s):
  • Carlos Escudé

The declassification of secret papers from the governmental archives of the United States and the United Kingdom makes it possible to document the instrumental use of the cause of human and civil rights for the attainment of pragmatic objectives of the United States government. At times, the rights policy was an instrument to pressure for a goal such as the ratification of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (the Rio Pact) – once reached, the rights policy was deactivated as friendly retribution. In other occasions, the rights policy was activated due to domestic pressure from U.S. lobbies such as the press and labor. When the United States were finally able to seduce Perón, the policy was deactivated and a discreet domestic campaign was launched to attempt to convince U.S. special interest groups of the convenience of cooperating with Argentina, as was widely accepted in regard to other dictatorships.
