CAPISTRANO, Daniel Jaime  and  CASTRO, Henrique Carlos de O.. O Papel do Estado e Cultura Política na Argentina e no Brasil. Opin. Publica [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.2, pp.338-365. ISSN 0104-6276.

Have the opinions and guidance of Argentines and Brazilians on politics and the state changed over the last twenty years? Several social changes during this period suggest that the political culture of these countries has also experienced a transformation. This work addresses this issue by emphasizing the social support for state intervention in the economy. The research results confirm the logic of change in political culture; however it shows a pattern of increasing emphasis on state action, which is not considered in the current debate. This pattern could be explained by historical, social and political characteristics of Latin American countries.

Keywords : political culture; political change; State; Brazil; Argentina.
