Oh Argentina, do you like planning or not?

In a new paper we (Rodrigo Alves Rolo, Martijn Duineveld and myself) look at the formation of planning policies in Argentina since the 1950s, and the planning revival between 2004 and 2015. We trace the reasons for the coming and going of planning, and the origins of ideas affecting the existence and form of planning. Foreign ideas were picked up for local reasons, and transformed for local reasons. The coming and going of planning is never a return of the same thing, or even a return of the same possibilities. In Argentina, tremendous economic and political shocks made looking forward very difficult, while Peronist ideology, sometimes bridging left and right, proved very resilient, and the Provinces became gradually more powerful.
