Abstract

This article empirically assesses the effect of workfare policy on social movement mobilizations in Argentina. The results suggest that an increase in workfare funds fueled the development of insurgency, and that ignoring simultaneity between workfare policy and protests leads to large biases.

Keywords: social movements, social policy, protests, Argentina
