DARGENT, EDUARDO y MUNOZ, PAULA. Peru 2011: Continuities and changes in politics without parties. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.1, pp.245-268. ISSN 0718-090X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2012000100013.
The election of Ollanta Humala in May 2011 made some observers speculate that this year could signal substantial changes in Peruvian politics. Even ifPeru did witness some political changes that did leave questions open about possiblefuture change, the image presented in this report is fundamentally one of continuity, both in the way in which politics is conducted as well as in thefactors that affect politics. While this reportfocuses on Peruvian politics during 2011, it reviews some cases from 2010 that deserve attention as well. Those aspects that make the Peruvian case interesting from a comparative perspective are highlighted throughout.
