Abstract:

Alan García emerged victorious in Peru’s 2006 presidential election because he promised what most Peruvians wanted: democracy and social justice, but also a respect for the market. Keeping this promise will not be easy. In contrast to the time of García’s first administration, however, Peru’s economy is now growing robustly, the country is by and large at political peace, and García has a good deal more experience. Under the García government, Peru’s deep socio-economic divides may at last be bridged, and its democracy may move closer to consolidation.
