Chile before the Crisis In order to understand the crisis of Chile in 1982, we have to take a look at the various political actions that led to it. After World War II, the economy of Chile was under a lot of protection. The socialist government of Salvador Allende maintained the policies adopted by its predecessor, Eduardo Frei Montalva, which included the nationalization of the copper industry, and agricultural reforms. Under the ISI (Industrialización mediante Sustitución de Importaciones) Model, the economic activity in Chile was mainly controlled by the central government. This model – adopted by many Latin American countries after WWII – consisted in the substitution of imported goods by the creation of similar domestically produced goods.
The efforts of Peron and his later Peronist movement were concentrated on eliminating poverty in Argentina and dignifying labor. This concentration was largely on the relationship between state and people. Whether seen in present day as fascist dictators or saints, Juan and Eva Peron’s impact on the country of Argentina are key figures in this country’s history. The political movement established by Juan Peron was named Peronism. Peronism in present day Argentina is represented by the Justicialist Party.

Todos somos indigenas: Towards a New Language of National Political Identity Andrew Canessa introduces the notion that being indigenous and representing indigenieity does not always mean the same thing. He mentions indigenous groups from around the world and how they have somehow adopted the term indigenous, and claim that they exclusively embody indigeneity. He provides the example of how the Incas’ occupation of parts of Bolivia during the early half of the 15th century qualifies them in being indigenous, while the Spanish who followed only a few decades later are considered being foreign. This is where an ambiguity is evident. The Spanish invaded in like manner as the Incas, Yet, only the descendants of the Incas are considered Indigenous in contemporary culture.
The measures resulted fruitful. And in the end I have come to a conclusion that world can use the case of “Argentina-Brazil nuclear rapprochement” to cooperate and eliminate threats in nuclear field. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Argentina and Brazil are the neighboring countries located in South American continent. Argentina- Brazil had a history of bad relations. Since they were the parts of their respective colonial empires and even after that when they became independent, in early 1800s, both nations mistrusted each other.
Some historians believe the islands were visited and used by groups of Incas as early as a century prior to de Berlanga's discovery, but this has never been proven. In 1570, mapmaker Abraham Ortelius plotted the Galapagos Islands, calling them the Isolas de Galapagos, or "Islands of the Tortoises," based on sailors' descriptions of the many tortoises inhabiting the islands. By the 17th century, the Galapagos Islands became a popular hideout for British buccaneers who pirated Spanish ships and looted Spanish settlements in Central and South America. These buccaneers and British whalers used the islands as a source of food on long journeys. The islands, still uninhabited on a permanent basis by man and, hence, shrouded in mystery, soon came to be known as the Enchanted Islands because they disappeared into the fog at certain times of year and could not be seen by passing ships.
Improvement on representing the people, and improvement on removing parties that use violence to name a few. Political Parties in Latin American Politics A political party can be defined in so many different ways, for the purpose of this paper it will be defined as a group of people who share political ideologies and pursue candidates to run for office and hold functions for the purpose of raising awareness and financial support. As for Latin America, the definition is narrower, when it comes to political parties and Presidential elections it is more common to see only one party involved in the selection process. Emerging from the 19th century political parties were geared along the lines of a republican influenced government, however a shift occurred with the presence of two parties also during this time. The Liberals and Conservatives representing the rural elites and the rising modern upper class.
In 1965, the UN classified the Falklands “as a colonial problem” and urged Britain and Argentina to find a solution. Britain stood by their belief in the right to ownership based on their “peaceful and continuous possession over a long period of time… and the islander’s desire to remain British” (Smith 1989: 14). On the other hand, the Argentines became aggressive stating that they would “accept nothing less than full sovereignty,” but the islanders rejected the option (Smith 1989: 14). With the United Nation’s support of Britain, the military dictatorship of Argentina saw no other option than to use military force to capture the Falkland Islands. On March 19, 1982, the conflict commenced as Argentina sent 30 scrap metal salvagers on South Georgia Island where they raised the Argentine flag.
