On January 16th, 1992 El Salvador was considered an example for the world. The Central American nation had finally signed the Peace Accords in the Castle of Chapultepec, Mexico with the mediation of the international community. Such agreements indicated the end of El Salvador brutal 12-year civil war, the transition from an authoritarian military regime to democracy and the introduction of a series of democratic reforms which aimed to solidify the state apparatus.
This thesis examines the Salvadoran Peace Accords in their scheme, and the historical circumstances that led to such negotiation. Furthermore, it will shed light upon El Salvador after the negotiations, and how that historical event is deeply intertwined with the current social war El Salvador faces nowadays.
