134 pages1 hour


In the present work, the mediating action of the United States in the war of the Pacific is analyzed in a critical manner, which took shape in October 1880 at the Arica Conferences.

The study consists of 3 chapters. The first one describes the military and economic situation prior to the conferences. The second chapter focuses on the analysis of the international political situation of the countries involved in the conflict, after Chile triumphed in the maritime and Tarapacá campaigns and in the impact that this had on American politics. The final chapter contains a critical-analytical narrative of American mediation, from the moment the State Department offered its good offices and mediation to the process of the Arica Conferences.
