Les frontières du gouvernement Kirchner entre aspiration au renouveau et consolidation de l´ancien


  • Maristella Svampa


This article analyzes the political and social aspects of the Kirchner government, in power since 2003, so as to identify its breaking points and continuities with the past. In a regional landscape where new ideological approaches have appeared, critical of the 1990s’ neo-liberalism, this administration has proved to be full of ambiguities, tensions and double talk. The analysis is centred around three of its major limits : social exclusion, as shown by the absence of truly inclusive projects considering the scale of the problems ; lack of job stability, as witnessed through the weakness and fluctuations of labour policy and the redistribution strategies to combat flexibilisation and the huge socio-economic asymmetries ; and institutional policy, as proved by the consolidation of the « decisionist » model and delegate democracy and by the absorption of pro-governmental trade unions coupled with the stigmatization of opposition organizations.
