State-sponsored activism: bureaucrats and social movements in democratic Brazil

By: Rich, Jessica A. J
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2019Description: xv, 240 p.: ill. Includes bibliographical references and indexISBN: 9781108470889Subject(s): AIDS - Disease - Government policy | HIV infections - Government policy | BrazilDDC classification: 362.196979200981 Summary: In State-Sponsored Activism, Rich explores AIDS policy in Brazil as a lens to offer new insight into state-society relations in democratic and post-neoliberal Latin America. In contrast to the dominant view that these dual transitions produced an atomized civil society and an impenetrable technocratic state, Rich finds a new model of interest politics, driven by previously marginalized state and societal actors. Through a rich examination of the Brazilian AIDS movement, one of the most influential movements in twenty-first century Latin America, this book traces the construction of a powerful new advocacy coalition between activist bureaucrats and bureaucratized activists. In so doing, State-Sponsored Activism illustrates a model whereby corporatism - active government involvement in civic mobilization - has persisted in contemporary Latin America, with important implications for representation and policymaking. https://www.cambridge.org/in/academic/subjects/politics-international-relations/latin-american-government-politics-and-policy/state-sponsored-activism-bureaucrats-and-social-movements-democratic-brazil?format=HB
