Abstract

Departing from Gramscian and institutionalist perspectives on Latin American welfare regimes, we will compare the development of social policies in Argentina and Brazil since the 1930s. The main focus of the article is on the liberal transformations occurring in the 1980s and 1990s and the recent changes since 2002. Special attention will be given to the social dynamics leading to newly emerging forms of welfare policies and their effect on the »strategic selectivities« of state institutions in the semi-periphery. Particular emphasis will be placed on both the universalism vs. targeting debate and on pacification of popular protest via »passive revolutions«.
