The Argentine Elections: What Happened and Future Scenarios

Argentine Elections

After Peronism's surprising defeat four years ago, the most historicized party in Latin America will return to the Argentine government in 2019. This panel will examine the motivations behind the choices of Argentine voters and the consequences of the election for Argentina's democracy and its economic future. Does the election reflect a population polarized between Peronism and Anti-Peronist identities?  Or are Argentines simply looking for the growth and low inflation that Macri could not deliver? Will the new government produce economic stability? What are the consequences of the electoral result for the quality of Argentine democracy, including judicial investigations of corruption?
