My name is Aníbal Nicolás Saldías. I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at the University of Toronto. My research areas are Comparative Politics, Development Studies, and Latin American Studies. Versión español aquí.
Although there was labour policy convergence, there was divergence regarding the evolution of labour relations. Argentina’s statist labour model faced existential pressure to reform. These pressures come from right-wing and left-wing parties, workers, the judiciary, and international organizations. Uruguay’s pluralistic labour model does not face similar existential pressures for reform. I argue that the legacies of institutionalization of labour relations from the 1940s can explain this variation in the contemporary period.
I am also the President and Cofounder of the Latin American Political Science Students Association (LAPSSA) at the University of Toronto. More information on the organization can be found here. In addition, I am a member of LASA’s Labour Section’s Graduate Student Council, and Graduate Affiliate at the University of Toronto’s Center for Critical Development Studies (CCDS).
