HAIDAR, Victoria. The Transformation of the Health and Labor Insurance System in Argentina. Espiral (Guadalaj.) [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.44, pp.79-122. ISSN 1665-0565.

In 1995 the legislation on work accidents and diseases was transformed in Argentina, and the Sistema de Riesgos del Trabajo (System of Work Hazards) was installed. This contribution concentrates on analyzing, on one hand, the tactical mobilization of legal recourses in the framework of a strategy that has promoted and defended reform of the said law in a neo-liberal sense. And on the other hand, the pragmatic alignment of juridical norms and principles within the opposite strategy, that intends to organize the management of work hazards according to a program of protection of waged labor. To this end, we have resorted to conceptual tools produced by the approaches of governmentality studies and discourse analysis.

Keywords : riesgos del trabajo; programas de gobierno; derechos como tácticas; análisis del discurso.
