Determinants of Latin American Welfare State Spending: Global and Religious Politics and International Human Rights

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



Abstract:

This study uses a quantitative, longitudinal approach to examine the influence of religious and global politics on social spending in 18 Latin American states from 1980-2000. Latin America is an underrepresented area in empirically based studies of welfare state development. Building on the many empirical studies of welfare state development in the advanced democracies of the West, this study adds a regional focus in Latin America. Specifically, I address two key theoretical areas largely underdeveloped or ignored: religious politics in the form of Catholic and Protestant Christian Democratic parties, and global political integration caused by growth of Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs), International Nongovernmental Organizations (INGOs) and international human rights treaties. The central research question of this study is: what is the relationship between social religious and global politics and social spending in 18 Latin American countries from 1980-2000. Methodologically, this study will use pooled time-series statistical techniques available in STATA. The following sections explore past research and theories of welfare state development while highlighting theoretical and empirical shortcomings in the literature. Next, the author provides a discussion of the intellectual merit of this research plan including methodology, research questions, data sources and indicators, case list, and explanation of time period selected. Finally, expected results and preliminary findings are discussed. This research is supported in part by the NSF (SES 1003012).
