The Power of Memory and Violence in Central America

The Power of Memory and Violence in Central America by Rachel Hatcher
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 252 Pages | ISBN : 3319897845 | 5.14 MB

This book explores the power of words in post-Peace El Salvador and Guatemala—their violent and equally liberating power. The volume explores the entire post-Peace Accords era in both Central American countries. In “post-conflict” settings, denying or forgetting the repressive past and its many victims does violence to those victims, while remembering and giving testimony about the past can be cathartic for survivors, relatives, and even for perpetrators. This project will appeal to readers interested in development, societies in transition, global peace studies, and Central American studies.

Central American countries use approximately one percent of their aggregate gross domestic product to subsidize residential electricity consumption. This amount is comparable to what these countries spend on education and social assistance. The pressure that these electricity subsidies exert on government budgets is particularly high when international energy prices rise. Furthermore, electricity subsidies may have negative effects on the environment because of overconsumption of electricity and an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.
