Abstract

In State-Sponsored Activism, Rich explores AIDS policy in Brazil as a lens to offer new insight into the impact of democratization and neoliberal reforms on state-society relations. In contrast to the view from traditional approaches that highlight the demise of corporatism, Rich argues that corporatism did not disappear but instead shifted to different sectors of the state, and to different segments of society. State-Sponsored Activism presents a new approach to understanding civic organization and mobilization at the start of the twenty-first century, and is a unique contribution to the literature on state-society relations. A rich examination of one the most influential movements in Latin America, this book argues that bureaucrats have helped to mobilize new national advocacy coalitions, and overall challenges the consensus view that corporatism is a relic of the past.
