Having left behind dictatorial regimes, many Latin American countries are transitioning to democratic regimes. According to international agencies and developed countries, this is remarkable progress and a step toward the implementation of inclusive polities. In the particular case of Chile the economic prosperity is an advantage that strengthens the country in the new millennium. The government is effectively fighting poverty; the atrocities committed under the Pinochet era are no longer denied, and the living standard of large portions of people have critically increased, giving to Chile the image of a good student among the messy class of Latin America.
