Latin America experienced a wave of large-scale and often sustained protest between 2018 and 2021. In Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and elsewhere, these protests triggered harsh police or paramilitary repression. How do these responses compare to earlier eras in Latin America? Have decades of democracy and human rights activism had on impact on the behavior of domestic security forces? Are Latin American governments’ commitment to human rights waning?
