Chile Defence & Security Report 2015 - New Study Released

Domestic security threats continue and have become more violent over 2014. T he spate of bombings in a terror campaign has seen military personnel called into action. Chile's reduction of overseas troops indicates the need to focus on domestic security issues that has been recognised by President Michelle Bachelet. However, there are further measures to be acted upon in her progressive outline for the Chilean armed forces. The bombings on the Santiago subway have rocked the nation into acting against those cell s that perpetrated the attack .

While the number of violent domestic incidents has decreased, the level of violence has increased. In addition, violence between the police force and Mapuche, Chile's largest indigenous group, continues, with little sign of easing. Currently the Chilean government treats the Mapuches as terrorists under an anti-terrorism law; and the struggle continues to cause violent civil unrest; and with an underfunded and, as some consider, under-equipped security force, it is unlikely that the issue will be resolved in the near future. Nevertheless, more arrests in terms of human-rights abuses during Chile's dictatorship are being made and anti-corruption campaigns are gaining traction. This is likely to decrease the violence over the medium term, as Chile focuses more on domestic issues rather than international ones.

Meanwhile, the controversial HidroAysén dam was cancelled in mid-2014 thanks to lobbying from environmentalists. This has not only helped ease security concerns but also given President Michelle Bachelet popularity amongst the affected region as well as environmentalists, but in contrast has angered local unions and corporations that depended on the dam. Bachelet has further ceased the rioting from the 2013 student protests, as she has promised free education rather than privatisation of the sector which former president, Sebastián Piñera, aimed for.
