First elected to the presidency in 1946, Juan Domingo Perón has remained one of the most seminal – yet controversial – figures in the history of Latin America. His rise to power brought about not just a new era in Argentine political history, but also resulted in the emergence of one of the longest lasting political movements in the world: Peronismo, or Peronism. Since its inception, it has been the salient driving force within the realm of Argentine politics for the better part of seven decades; indeed, since 1946, the Peronists have won 10 of the 13 presidential elections in which they have been allowed to run.
Much like Peronism’s influence on Argentina, COVID-19 has continued to shape and define the world since its initial global proliferation. This thesis seeks to understand the impact of Peronism – and the Peronist coalition – on the policy choices made by the Argentine government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
