Search for Identity: Reflections on Human Rights Abuses During Argentina's Dirty War (July 16, 2014)

Tens of thousands of individuals were arrested, tortured, and killed during Argentina's "Dirty War" from 1976-1983, which then-U.S. President Jimmy Carter protested by withdrawing U.S. economic and military support. This Conversation starts with the 45-minute documentary "Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo and the Search for Identity," which describes efforts to track down grandchildren missing as a result of the atrocities. A discussion featuring central figures in the film follows the screening, led by President Carter, whose focus on human rights continues today through The Carter Center.

Panelists included:

- Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter
- Dr. Charlie Tuggle, producer of "Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo and the Search for Identity"
- Hodding Carter, former U.S. assistant secretary of state for public affairs
- Tex Harris, former U.S. Embassy officer in Argentina
- Bob Cox, former editor of the English-language Buenos Aires Herald

The event was moderated by Dr. Jennifer McCoy, director of the Carter Center's Americas Program.

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
