Failed presidencies and social protest in the context of
Bolivian politics: Empirical evidence
Abstract:
This paper seeks to test the theories relating social protest with failed presidencies by
applying them to the empirical evidence in the Bolivian case. While a level of relationship
might have been established by the literature on the topic, I find that this relationship is much
more direct and it depends on the intensity of the protests. Social protests (at all levels of
intensity) have been a factor omnipresent in post transition periods of instability. The outcome
shows, where the intensity of protests has been high, presidents could not hold on to their
offices.
