Abstract: Reparation is considered the structural axis of the Brazilian political transition. Despite being the most consolidated pillar, it is not immune to dispute over its concept. There is an intense social and political dispute over: Who can be the beneficiary of reparation? Why and how to make reparations? Who can be held accountable? The transitional justice agenda in Brazil has contributed to broadening the concept of reparation beyond the merely economic perspective, bringing it closer to the concept of comprehensive reparation, expanding material access to justice and strengthening the protection of human rights in Brazil.
