2014 has been a busy year for Latin America from a political point of view. In fact, it could be said 2014 was the first year of the new cycle. A new political cycle marked by electoral volatility and the weakness of party and personalist hegemonies.
This regional report shows how the region is entering a new economic and social era (a much more complex context, with higher tensions and demands from the emerging middle classes and popular sectors), and this has direct consequences on the party systems and the governability of the countries across the region.
