  • While 2019 mass protests forced the government to begin reforming the dictatorship-era constitution, the drafting process has given way to an unusual level of polarization that threatens to disrupt a long period of political stability.
  • The national police have at times used excessive force to disperse peaceful demonstrations, notably during the 2019 protests and their anniversaries, as well as against demonstrations by Mapuche activists demanding that their territorial and other rights be protected.
