Kennemore, Amy ; Weeks, Gregory. Twenty-First Century Socialism? The Elusive Search for a Post-Neoliberal Development Model in Bolivia and Ecuador . p. 267-281 Bolivia | Ecuador
Socialismo / Desarrollo / Evo Morales
Siglo XX | Siglo XXI

Resumen

The recent political, economic and social histories of Bolivia and Ecuador point to a broader, post-neoliberal trend emerging in Latin America. Presidents Evo Morales and Rafael Correa have closely followed the basic model of twenty-first-century socialism as an alternative to free market capitalism. In theory, both leaders have successfully re-founded their countries with new constitutions that encompass the interests of all sectors of society. In practice, however, we argue that a volatile economic climate, poorly implemented reforms, increased opposition, and low political tolerance all indicate limitations to the viability of twenty-first-century socialism as a post-neoliberal development model.

Boccagni, Paolo ,; Lagomarsino, Francesca. Migration and the Global Crisis: New Prospects for Return? The Case of Ecuadorians in Europe . p. 282-297 Ecuador
Migración / Retorno / Ecuador
Siglo XX | Siglo XXI

Resumen

This article explores the impact of the current recession on Ecuadorian labour migration to Europe. Several factors affect the evolution of this migration system: receiving countries' policies, the labour market demand (and its deterioration) and the scope for the self-maintenance of migrants' social networks. We especially focus on a relatively less studied issue: emigrant policies, symbolised, in Ecuador, by a pervasive emphasis on migrant return, somewhat echoed even in Spain, as a destination country. Still, a massive return scenario is implausible in the light of migrants' family stabilisation abroad, and of the uncertain prospects for development in their motherland. Even during a worldwide recession, the ‘hidden agendas' in migration policies, along with the distinct time-scale and the self-feeding potential of a long-distance migration system, should be critically appreciated.

Ansell, Aaron ; Mitchell, ken. Models of Clientelism and Policy Change: The Case of Conditional Cash Transfer Programmes in Mexico and Brazil . p. 298-312 Brasil | México
Clientelismo / México / Brasil
Siglo XX | Siglo XXI

Resumen

Clientelist systems vary, and this variation influences the adoption and evolution of conditional cash transfer (CCT) programmes. We find that vertically integrated, corporatist clientelism in Mexico and more locally oriented, bossist clientelism in Brazil differentially shape the choices of governments to turn piecemeal, discretionary CCTs into more expansive and secure benefits.

Seveso, César . Millions of Small Battles: The Peronist Resistance in Argentina . p. 313-327 Argentina
Memoria / Peronismo / Resistencia
Siglo XX

Resumen

This article studies the working-class clandestine political organisation known as the Peronist resistance. Created after Argentine President Juan Perón was overthrown in 1955, the resistance movement was much more than a reaction to the limitations imposed on the organisation of unions. It signalled the birth of a new paradigm of political and cultural resistance firmly anchored in the household and the neighbourhood. Looking into the cultural dimensions of violence, the study shows how violence functioned as a creative force, producing transformations in political agency and cultural practices that reached into the Peronist household and shaped mourning rituals and the politics of martyrdom.

Gordon, Todd ; Webber, Jeffery R. Canada and the Honduran Coup . p. 328-343 Honduras
Imperialismo / Honduras / Canadá
Siglo XXI

Resumen

The purpose of this article is to expose the part played by Canadian imperialism in Honduras before and after the military overthrow of democratically elected Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, on 28 June 2009. It draws attention to the neglected role of the Canadian state's efforts to protect the interests of Canadian capital in Honduras and Latin America more generally through the constant undermining of Zelaya's attempts to return to his legitimate office, and in the ultimate consolidation of the coup under Porfirio ‘Pepe’ Lobo in early 2010. The article simultaneously develops a critique of what has become the standard account of the Honduran coup of 2009. We show how Zelaya was neither a puppet of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, nor an autocrat seeking to entrench his power indefinitely through illegal constitutional reform when he was violently tossed out of government.

Niell, Paul. El Templete and Cuban Neoclassicism: A Multivalent Signifier as Site of Memory . p. 344-365 Cuba
Neoclasicismo / Colonialismo / Cuba
Siglo XIX

Resumen

In this article I explore the production and reception of El Templete, a nineteenth-century memorial erected to commemorate the founding of Havana. This symbolically rich monument participates in the aesthetic traditions of architecture, sculpture and painting, and is a paradigmatic example of the multivalence of public, monumental art in the late colonial classicism of Latin America and the Caribbean. Rather than representing strictly an aesthetic discourse of Spanish colonial power, El Templete underwent a process of local assimilation, whereby classical forms and academic aesthetics were adapted to the self-representation of a heterogeneous colonial city.
