MERINO, Gabriel Esteban. From the apogee “lulista” to the dismissal of Dilma: The development of the neodesarrollista popular national articulation in Brazil. Latinoamérica [online]. 2018, n.66, pp.223-259. ISSN 2448-6914.

This paper analyses the political and social articulation and the structures of governing power in Brazil during the Partido de los Trabajadores (PT) (Labourers Party) rule. It looks at the way the popular national neodevelopment articulation leadered by Luis Inácio da Silva (Lula), had a decisive hold in the State in the context of a favorable international scene -growing relative multipolartity, high prices of commodities and advancement of autonomous regionalism in the area. From this in mind it is more feasible to explain several measures and geo-strategic stands of PT’s administrations. The text argues that the causes of the crisis of lulist articulation and the fall of PT, can be explained considering two fundamental turning points: the modification of international setting and the pressure of dominant forces in the USA and the “Global North” regarding Brazilian’s foreign policy, and the aggravation of contradictions, both within government power structures and inside the popular national neodevelopment articulation, besides the cases of corruption and the limits of dependency.

Palabras llave : Lulism; Polítical-social articulation; Neodevelopment; Popular nacionalism; Dependency.
