This thesis analyses the political transition process in El Salvador after its twelve-year civil war and the Transitional Justice mechanisms used in the post-conflict context: first the Truth Commission and then the amnesty laws. The objective of this research is to establish the effects of the amnesty on the peace building process and the scenarios that may occur after its recent declaration of unconstitutionality in connection to democratic governability and the pursuit of justice for serious human rights violations perpetrated during the armed conflict, which remain still unpunished 25 years after the signing of the Peace Accords. Keywords: Transitional Justice, Peace Accords, amnesty.
