Peru: RIP Carlos Ivan Degregori

I'm saddened to hear of the death of Carlos Ivan Degregori, one of the most important writers on the Peruvian conflict and one of the members of the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. This is a great loss to Peruvian academia and human rights - as well, of course, to his family and friends. I had the honour of meeting him at a conference in Newcastle several years ago and was impressed both by his presentation and his friendly manner.
