"Neopopulism" has traditional and novel features of what is usually referred to as "populism" in Latin America, a loose concept that, nevertheless, remains a useful analytical category when trying to understandthe complexities of LatinAmerican politics and society. This presentation considers an analysis of the tensions between representative democracy, its institutions, and populism (old and new) in Latin America. The core question raised by the presentation will be: is the real dilemma in Latin America today that between "neoliberalism" and "neopopulism“?
