Imagocratic Authoritarianism in Peru (1990-2000)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Fujimori regime (1990-2000) in Peru has also been described as an ‘imagocratic’ dictatorship because of its unique reliance on the yellow press to achieve political objectives, as opposed to the use of the repressive organs of the state which has historically been the norm in Latin America. When elected to his country’s presidency in 1990, Alberto Fujimori had never anticipated to win and had no plan for government action while the situation in his country was turning increasingly disastrous. Meanwhile, the military had been pondering a military coup and the formation of an authoritarian regime. What came about was the pairing between a president without a plan and the military, brought together through the courtesy of a shady former army officer and lawyer, Vladimiro Illich Montesinos Torres. The country’s main secret service, the Servicio de Inteligencia Nacional (SIN) led by Montesinos, suppressed opposition activities, manipulated elections, or made use of its own propaganda machine. My paper will analyze the totalitarian-like methods used to smear the opposition, particularly the practices of the gutter press, the prensa chicha.
