ARANDA BUSTAMANTE, Gilberto. Human Rights, Economic Liberalism and Social Affairs in Post-Pinochet Chile. Contexto int. [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.1, pp.133-163.  Epub May 10, 2016. ISSN 1982-0240.

The Chilean democratisation process sought the international rehabilitation of a country in the declarative triad of human rights, democratic representation and economic liberalism. Since 1994, the country has reached greater prominence through economic diplomacy and the strategy of open regionalism, and with it the influence of business interest groups. This article holds that, additionally, the human rights movement gave the civilian governments a stamp of symbolic commitment to this issue that, at the turn of the century, led to Chile's active participation in multilateral forums on social inclusion. Additionally, with the turn of the century, the State opened spaces for the interaction of border social groups, particularly the ethnic groups, with which they had cultivated strong transnational dynamics.

Keywords : Chile; Human Rights; Neoliberalism; Regionalism; Paradiplomacy Integration.
