ABSTRACT
The article evaluates the ability of democracies reborn after state terror to reincorporate rights in their integrity and synchrony. Through an historic focus, with emphasis on the Uruguayan case, it analyzes the difficulties in incorporating the legal frameworks and sensibilities of the international environment on human rights and achieve the full restoration of the institution. It favors the current phase to demonstrate how some Latin American states show a proclivity in selecting rights based on their content and temporary nature. Although the value system relating to rights is part of a global agenda, the outline of the definition is national. The Uruguayan debate provides evidence for two neighboring models, Argentina and Brazil, with opposing focuses to tackle the challenges that the past traumas impose on the present. In the middle of them, Uruguay forges an arduous path.
