Party Realignment and the Transformation of Chilean Politics: From the Frente Democrático to the Concertación

March 29th, 2012
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

University of New Orleans
Milneburg Hall 314

Lecture by Eduardo Alemán, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Houston.

In this talk, Alemán argues that a fundamental realignment of the Chilean party system occurred during the period of military rule under General Augusto Pinochet (1973-1989), which restructured competition into a new and durable system of two opposing party alliances. The paper addresses the implications of this realignment for congressional politics and policy outcomes by comparing bill collaboration before and after the military government.

Eduardo Alemán is an associate professor in the political science department at the University of Houston. He specializes in the comparative analysis of political institutions and Latin American politics. His current work focuses on executivelegislative relations, parliamentary procedures, and government coalitions across Latin American legislatures. He also is working on a book about Chilean legislative politics. Professor Alemán has published articles in journals such as World Politics, Comparative Politics, Legislative Studies Quarterly, and Latin American Research Review.

Refreshments will be served.

Event sponsored by UNO Latin American Studies and the Department of Political Science.
