The verdict on the Operation Condor trial in Italy will drop before the New Year. In anticipation, the Historias team is providing an encore presentation of our discussion with Dr. Francesca Lessa, a leading scholar on transitional justice and the Operation Condor trials.

Happy listening.

Dr. Francesca Lessa, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Latin American Centre at the University of Oxford, joined Steven to talk about Operation Condor and the pursuit of justice and accountability for the states and actors responsible for transnational human rights crimes in the 1970s.
