Argentina: A Regional Outlier in an Unsettled Region?
This presentation will discuss the results of the 2019 Argentine election and the victory of Peronism emphasizing an apparent return to a bipolar electoral system and the challenges of the next administration. The situation of Argentina will be analyzed in regional perspective given the wave of social and political unrest experienced by the Andean countries of South America.
