Abstract : El Salvador is on the road to peace and reconciliation after twelve years of war (1980-1992). The signing of the final peace accord in Mexico City on January 16, 1992, an occasion marked by extraordinary displays of mutual affection and respect among once-bitter enemies, demonstrated a genuine desire on the part of key actors in society to work toward democracy in El Salvador. This paper presents an historical overview of Salvadoran society, the origin of the Salvadoran conflict, and the Peace Process from 1984 to 1992. It discusses the roles that the major actors played in the process, and how the Peace Accord has changed the social, political, and military aspects of Salvadoran society.
