Kellogg Panel: The Argentine Elections: What Happened and Future Scenarios

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Argentine Elections

After Peronism’s surprising defeat four years ago, the most historicized party in Latin America is poised to return to the Argentine government. This panel will examine the motivations behind the choices of Argentine voters and the consequences of the election for Argentine democracy and Argentina’s economic future. Do Argentines demand a return to the policies of kirchnerismo or are they simply looking for the growth and low inflation that Macri could not deliver?  Will the new government produce economic stability? How will the electoral result affect the quality of Argentine democracy, including judicial investigations of corruption?…

Kellogg World Politics Series: Are Referendums Ever Good for Democracy?

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

The Kellogg Institute welcomes Susan StokesTiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor, and Faculty Chair, Chicago Center on Democracy at the University of Chicago.

With the debacle of the Brexit process in the UK, the sheen has come off referendums. Democratic theory still offers some justifications for referendums, but it is hard to evaluate these justifications without strong evidence regarding how they actually work. Under what strategic circumstances do political leaders decide to turn the choice over to the people? And what is the nature of voting behavior in referendums? In addition to exploring referendums and democratic theory, this presentation will focus on the question of voting behavior and on the fact that turnout tends to be lower in referendums than in candidate elections. Stokes will draw on evidence from Colombia’s 2016 referendum on peace accords to argue that party structures and incentives are an important part of the answer. …
