FROM KIRCHNER'S GOVERNMENTS TO THE MACRI GOVERNMENT: PETROLEUM, SOVEREIGNTY AND TERRITORIAL AND CAPITAL LOGICS IN THE GEOPOLITICAL CONFLICT OF MALVINAS
MetadataShow full item record
Argentina since its establishment as Nation-state (1816) claimed the Falkland Islands as part of its national territory, approaching the situation in different ways depending on different governments. The main objective of this article is to describe the political positioning of the Kirchner (2002-2015) and Macri (2015-2019) governments, together with a comparison of the evolution of the geopolitical approach of the dispute of the Malvinas. Based on the indirect strategy and the behaviour of the Argentine government, a possible cooperation on the use of wealth is built, despite the Modus vivendi of direct sovereignty. The Kirchner governments adopted a multilateral stance, calling on the South American community. Mauricio Macri, as the new president of Argentina, presents another stance, which we can identify as a bilateral approach. In this way, we can identify, by means of the characteristics of these two positions a similarity with the concept of capital and territorial logic of Arrighi.
