Abstract

In this paper, we critically engage with the notion of a 'post-neoliberal turn' in Latin America. The analysis interrogates the existence and characteristics of post-neoliberalism as a mode of regulation, and explores the contributions (and limits) of the concept as a means of theorizing political and economic restructuring. We critically synthesize the literature, articulating commonly cited principles and practices of post-neoliberalism according to different political, ideological, and geographical contexts. To generate productive engagement across disciplinary and geographical boundaries, we draw on perspectives from Latin America and on concepts of 'variegated neoliberalization' and 'counter-neoliberalization' (thereby abstracting from, rather than about, Latin America).
