Carolina Milhorance (CIRAD) signe cet article "Policy dismantling and democratic regression in Brazil under Bolsonaro: Coalition politics, ideas, and underlying discourses" paru dans le volume 39 de Review of Policy Research.
Drawing on a cost–benefit approach, policy dismantling literature typically examines case studies following omitted and blame-avoidance strategies, which contrasts with the highly visible dismantling fostered by Bolsonaro's far-right administration in Brazil.
This study examines the mechanisms leading to this active process and places it in the context of major policy changes in several fields (i.e., rural development, land titling, social protection, environment, and protection of indigenous peoples). It shows that dismantling decisions were made incrementally by conservative coalitions that seized upon the economic crisis to consolidate a neoliberal turn; however, this turn was radicalized with the expansion of the conservative alliance and tied together by populist rhetoric. This study sheds light on the politics of policy dismantling and addresses it as a process of democratic backsliding.
