HEGEMONY AND COUNTER-HEGEMONY IN SOUTH AMERICA: the Mercosur case study

0
123

The research question addressed in this study is: Is there a counter-hegemonic movement in South American regionalism today? The comprehension of the emergence of hegemonic (or counter-hegemonic) projects implies that they should compare with an already pre-established hegemon in the international system, which in this case is the United States of America (US). Despite today’s discussion about the decline, rise or stagnation of the US hegemony we will argue that the “counter” should represent an expression that characterizes the ability to confront or stand up to the US sphere of influence in South America.

This book has been structured to fulfill its ontological objective, that is, to ascertain whether there is a counter-hegemonic movement in South America regionalism today, bearing in mind the Gramscian concept of hegemony in relation to Mercosur.
