The purpose of this thesis is to expand on the existing literature covering Latin American economic reform through a new take on the state/opposition relationship that accounts for the differences in neoliberal consolidation in Chile and Argentina. More specifically, it identifies the management tactics employed by the state to diminish anti-neoliberal mobilizations and how these tactics adjust over time with changes in government. This thesis isolates and analyzes the consistency of state opposition management tactics across various administrations and its effect on the consolidation of a stable neoliberal model. In Chile, consistency in management tactics across successive governments has fostered the consolidation and stability of their neoliberal model. Conversely, in Argentina, the strength of the neoliberal model has suffered greater alterations due to the inconsistency in opposition management tactics used by the Kirchner administrations when compared to previous governments.
