The politics of Argentina today: human rights and Kirchnerismo
by Maximiliano E. Korstanje
International Journal of Human Rights and Constitutional Studies (IJHRCS), Vol. 4, No. 2, 2016

Abstract: After the effects of bloody dictatorship that whipped the region, Argentina as many other Latin American countries experienced a great trauma which not only altered the ways politics was lived, but also undermined the social trust of citizens respecting to their institutions. The rise of Kirchneristes and Kirchnerismo post stock and market crisis of 2001, initiated a new age in Argentina. Kirchnerismo opened the doors for the vindication of many claims of human rights organisations, but at the same time, the discourse of human rights was adjusted to the interests of Cristina Kirchner and her followers. As a result of this, the cause of human rights allowed government to produce a new way of making politics where the concept of reality is altered according to textual connotations, which produces a gap between the sense of reality and citizenry.
