How could 51,960 Quechua speakers die without the notice of the Peruvian government?

During last decades of the 20th century, Latin America saw the emergence of violence, dictatorships and armed conflicts. In this context, the Peruvian Armed Conflict (1980-2000) is only one of many stories of violence and death that beset the region’s poorest population. By 2003 the Armed Conflict had caused the death of 69,280 victims. Of the total of victims, 75% were Quechua people who were living in rural areas Peruvian population was not affected equally. The war especially affected indigenous people. This course will discuss and reflect about the Peruvian Armed Conflict and its actual meaning for the region. Within the course we will analyze the historical conditions that allowed the emergence of this conflict; and the conflict progress in different Peruvian regions. We will analyze of State’s role, changes within armed group’s strategies and civilian groups’ responses. This course aims to discuss Contemporary History, thinking about the state’s role, insurgent groups; and the historical conditions and consequences of armed conflicts, focusing especially in the indigenous population.
