Post hegemonic policies in South America : The case of financial cooperation

Diana Tussie, Pablo Nemiña


This article proposes an analysis of the development of post-hegemonic strategies in Latin America during the last two decades. In the second section, we review the emergence of the strategy and its meaning in the light of multilateralism. In the next section, we analyse in detail the main initiatives in the financial sphere, perhaps one of the fields in which the region tried, with mixed success, to dispute the status quo.
