Lessons from a war

By Fabian Bosoer (for Safe Democracy)

Fabian Bosoer analyzes the Malvinas/Falklands War, drawing modern day lessons from the 1982 policy blunder. In Bosoer‘s opinion, the Malvinas War is a philosopher’s stone into Argentina‘s history, enabling the study and understanding of the insidious influence of authoritarian regimes, the abuse of secret diplomacy, and the difficulty of mutual trust between peripheral and core countries. Argentina may have lost its claim on the Malvinas Islands, but it won something even more important: a return to democracy.
