CANTAMUTTO, Francisco J.. Phases of Kirchnerism: from rupture to particularistic assertion. Convergencia [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.74, pp.63-89. ISSN 2448-5799.

This paper analyzes Kirchnerism as a populist political process. Using specific literature, it is possible to reconstruct the change in the political and social alliances of the government, marked by the conflict with the agricultural fraction of the bloc in power in 2008. This conflict caused a change in the emphasis on the political strategy of the government, which modified its discourse and alliances. On this basis, the article proposes a periodization of the process in two stages, changing from the populist rupture to a particularistic affirmation of the Kirchnerist identity. The article shows in detail the new features of the political order after 2008.

Keywords : Kirchnerism; populism; alliances; particularism; bloc in power.
