En línea : The effect of district magnitude on electoral outcomes : Evidence from two natural experiments
in Argentina de Adrían Lucardi
How does district magnitude affect electoral outcomes ? This article addresses this question by exploiting a combination of two natural experiments in Argentina between 1985 and 2015. Argentine provinces elect half of their congressional delegation every two years, and thus districts with an odd number of representatives have varying magnitudes in different election years.

“Discontinuities and Resistance in Latin America”

Latin America is one of the world regions in which borders are malleable or fragile, yet resistant.

City in Common: Culture and Community in Buenos Aires

Using Buenos Aires as his case study, James Scorer traces the figure and practice of 'the commons' in Argentine cultural production to explore how communities are variously shaped and contested within urban imaginaries. Exploring a diverse set of works, including literature, film, and comics, and engaging with urban theory, political philosophy, and Latin American cultural studies, he paints a portrait of a city caught between the opposing forces of commoning and fragmentation.

As a result of the liberalising reforms of the 1990s and the commodity super-cycle that followed, Peru's business elites have accumulated very substantial political power which they have deployed through a number of mechanisms to maintain an effective control over the key workings of the state.
