Chile is one of the classic cases of post-authoritarian transition. The excessive caution of its early transitional justice trajectory gradually gave way to what some now consider to be a success story of incrementalism. The formal justice dimension of the 1990 transitional settlement was notably truncated, but substantial changes occurred after 1998. Although right-wing political figures and the armed forces initially opposed these changes vigorously, their veto power diminished substantially over the first decade of transition. Generational replacement and attitudinal change also had an effect, and by 2014 the political right showed signs of at least considering a definitive break with its authoritarian past.
