Abstract

This is a study on the experience and memory of the Russell II Tribunal, on opinion tribunal held in Italy and Belgium between 1974 and 1976, which featured testimonies from Brazilian exiles and former political prisoners during the military dictatorship (1964-1985). It seeks to understand what possibilities of enunciation of torture were opened after the event, taking into account the silence imposed by the regime and by the militants' own moralities on the issue in Brazil. In this sense, it focuses its attention on the emergence, development and repercussions of the event, involving networks of exiles, intellectuals and human rights activists, in the midst of the long-standing process of claiming democracy and respect to human rights that extends to the present day. It proposes to carry out an ethnography including the study of documents, bibliographies and files related to the event, as well as interviews with its alive participants alive and /or entrepreneurs of its memory. The proposal is a contribution to the anthropological studies on suffering, violence, memory and human rights. (AU)
