This paper offers an analysis of the human rights movement in Peru, approaching it through a discussion on reparations for victims of the armed conflict that Peru endured from 1980 to 2000. Focusing on these themes allows the study to explore the formation of discourses and objectives within the movement, how those evolve, how the movement relates to external agents and allies as it seeks to achieve its objectives, its strategies for relating to the state at different points in time, and the different stakeholders and opinions within the movement itself. Focusing on reparations will also provide a broader view of the way in which this movement is currently operating.
