    Author : Rafael Ignacio Numi; [2021]
    Keywords : Human Rights - Social Security - Pension System - Chile - Inter-American Court of Human Rights; Law and Political Science;

    Abstract : In the early 1980s, during the darkest years of Pinochet’s dictatorship, an apparently innocuous but radical decision was made: to implement an old-age pension system based on individual accounts mandatorily administered by private for-profit entities called ‘pension fund administrators’ (‘AFPs’, by its acronym in Castilian), in which the workers’ social security regarding old-age pensions was in practice totally dependent on their individual saving capacity during their working life.

    Abstract : The absence of provisions on hardship under the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”) and the general recognition of the principle of hardship in private international law lead to some problems to maintain the legislative purpose of the Convention as the “lingua franca” of international trade. In order to make the application of the Convention not only on the surface of the text, but also to implement the uniformity of the law, it is necessary to discuss the controversial question about the application of CISG exemption clause under the hardship situation.
