What has been the role of societal coalitions in promoting redistribution?

Europe and North America redistribution in Latin America?

  • To counterbalance elites, progressive parties created distributional coalitions with an extensive array of actors (Korpi and Palmer)

  • Coalitions were contingent on welfare regimes, yet they all involved powerful social actors (Esping Andersen)

  • Virtuous circle: The more universal the policies, the stronger the coalitions and the more universal the policies

  • Two decades of privatization; decentralization and targeting

  • Retrenchment of social policies for the middle-class and growing social assistance to the poor

  • They did reach the poor through basic services

    With a pro-poor and minimalist view of redistribution… are there any chances for strong societal distributional coalitions?

  • Further redistribution involves different challenges across countries / WR:

  • Chile: Can societal coalitions tap into policy formation?

  • Costa Rica: Can elites and societal coalitions build alliances?

  • El Salvador: Can a progressive elite coalition work along societal coalitions?


In short l.jpg
In short redistribution in Latin America?

  • The “problem” is not, in and of itself, technocracy

  • But technocracy´s ideology regarding:

    • Substantive matters (paradigm)

    • Policy formation

  • Thus, the alliances btw (progressive) gvts and collective actors

  • Real challenge: how to promote “good” technocracies?!!
