Civil Engagement In Argentina After The Last Dictatorship, Emily Hoffer Jan 2017

Civil Engagement In Argentina After The Last Dictatorship, Emily Hoffer

Senior Honors Theses

How has the legacy of the Argentine dictatorship affected civil engagement? This study helps understand I) dilemmas of an authoritarian regime's transition to democracy; 2) changes in the form of civic engagement, from conventional political participation to social movements; and 3) how civic engagement is influenced by the narratives and symbols that create historical memory. I will compare Argentina with similar political experiences of democratization and new social movements in Latin America since the late 1980s.
