und10121316_300x199Last week the London Global Gateway hosted a roundtable organized by Scott Mainwaring and Gabriela Ippolito-O’Donnell of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of democratic rule in Argentina.

“We are celebrating a founding moment today,” said Ambassador Castro, describing the December 10, 1983 swearing in of Argentina’s first democratically elected president after military rule and the truth commission, the world’s first, that followed. “The fight against impunity represents the collective effort of our people.”
