This profile provides a guide to the major recent economic, social, and political developments within Peru, viewed through the eyes of Peruvians themselves. John Crabtree emphasises the depth of social divides in a country where more than half of the population lives in poverty and without access to adequate employment. He analyses the weakness of democratic institutions, and the lack of political 'voice' of the majority of men and women, whilst examining the background to the country's poor human rights record in recent years.
