Abstract | Full Text

Uruguay has a party political system. The central actors play an important - though not exclusive - role in shaping the political agenda and in defining strategies for public policies. Within these parties there are a number of highly institutionalized factions. This paper presents an analysis of the positioning of parties and factions on Uruguayan foreign policy, showing inter and intra-party convergences and divergences on the subject. The information presented was obtained through a survey of Uruguayan legislators. The findings show similarities and differences of opinion with and between the parties, and lead us to believe that Uruguayan foreign policy is a party political matter, where ideology is a relevant factor in terms of explaining it.
