Chapter Summary

The Republic of Marelle is a Member State of the Organization of American States and since January 1 1989 has been a party to the American Convention. Mrs. Olivera argued that democracy as a system was ineffective in resolving the social injustice existing in the poor countries of the Third World and served only the imperialist interests of developed countries. She indicated that the Marelle democratic system maintained the oligarchy in power, while excluding de facto the majority of the population. In her opinion, given the social and economic circumstances of the country, the only way to redress the existing injustice was through armed struggle.

Keywords: American Convention; democratic system; hypothetical Case; oligarchy; Sybille Olivera V. Marelle; Third World
