(p.132) 5 Outsiders and Neopopulism: The Road to Plebiscitary Democracy
The Crisis of Democratic Representation in the Andes

René Antonio Mayorga

Stanford University Press

This chapter explores the roots of neopopulism and the emergence of outsider politicians in the Andean countries. It identifies the causes for the emergence of outsiders and their rise to power, looks at the sequences and patterns of party system collapse and analyzes the negative impact of outsiders' politics on liberal democracy and democratic institutions. It examines the common patterns and qualitative differences in Peru, Venezuela and Bolivia and suggests that the main cause of the decomposition of party systems is a crisis of governability.

Keywords:   neopopulism, outsider politicians, party system collapse, Peru, Venezuela, Bolivia, governability, liberal democracy, democratic institutions
