Populismo y democracia a debate: Una mirada cruzada desde el caso boliviano

Armando Chaguaceda, Carlos Torrealba

Abstract


In consonance with the contents of this dossier, this article seeks to relate debates about the nature, current state, and effects of populism ‒appealing both to classical visions and to more recent proposals‒with phenomena and processes that characterize Bolivian political reality in particular, and that of Latin America in general. In doing so, the article delves into the relationship between populism and democracy, discussing the relevance of whether or not to assign a populist character to the government headed by Evo Morales.

En sintonía con los contenidos del presente dosier, el objetivo de este artículo  es relacionar el debate sobre la naturaleza, actualidad y efectos del populismo –apelando tanto a las visiones clásicas como a planteos más recientes– con los fenómenos y procesos que caracterizan la realidad política boliviana y, de forma  más general, latinoamericana. Al hacer esto, se profundiza sobre la relación entre populismo y democracia y se discute la pertinencia de adjudicar (o no adjuticar) un carácter populista al gobierno que encabeza Evo Morales.
