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?
