VERA GAJARDO, Sandra. Transitions in Contemporary Democracies in Chile and Spain. Estud. sociol [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.110, pp.397-427. ISSN 2448-6442.

The present article compares the survival of social and political divisions at the time of the democratic transitions of two countries: Chile and Spain. It focuses on the description and explanation of the conflict around the dictatorial past and political transitions. The comparative analysis highlights the persistence of impunity inaugurated in the political transition in Spain, and in the Chilean case the absence of adjustments that explain the transformation of the conflict. With this type of analysis, we can find aspects that speak about the predominant cultural hegemonies, as well as the pressures that have produced changes in these countries.
