Over the past decade, many countries have seen increasingly robust policy challenges by subnational governments (states, provinces, municipalities, etc.) that are opposed to the ideology of the national government. Professor Eaton focuses on the central Andean cases of Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru to better understand the nature of these new “subnational policy challenges,” and why they succeed or fail.

Kent Eaton is a professor in the Politics Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He has written on Latin American politics for Comparative Politics, Comparative Political Studies, and the Journal of Latin American Studies.
