A Glimpse Into Contested Indigenous Peoples' Rights in Peru: The Forced Sterilization of Indigenous Women
Listen now
This study examines Peru's status of indigenous peoples' rights. Specifically, it assesses the state’s respect towards indigenous rights through a case omitted by the TRC but one that continues to dominate political rhetoric: the forced sterilization of women of indigenous and poor economic backgrounds. Specifically, the study focuses on memory initiatives within symbolic reparations and the TRC's Final Report, and how these two processes have situated the case of forced sterilization within the broader context of the internal armed conflict.
