GIORDANO, Verónica  y  RODRIGUEZ, Gina Paola. Memorial fights and power strategies of the rights in Latin America today. Universitas [online]. 2019, n.31, pp.19-36. ISSN 1390-8634.

Recently, right-wing forces of different origins and types have sprung up in Latin America. In this article, four countries are studied: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Peru. The first two correspond to cases in which the right-wing groups stand in opposition to the so-called progressive governments. The other two correspond to cases in which they stand in a political system with a strong continuity of predominance of right-wing forces. Since there are few studies with an overall perspective, this article seeks to make a contribution in that direction. The objective is to analyze the non-electoral strategies of construction and/or exercise of power implemented by the right-wing groups around the memorial struggles. Based on the review of journalistic sources and speeches of the national right-wing referents, this article analyzes how current right-wing groups have proceeded to the institution of languages ​​and the definition of a field of meanings that dispute the meaning of the recent past. From a comparative perspective, it is argued that in all four cases negationism offers an effective repertoire for these groups, which is used in their non-electoral (as well as electoral) strategies for building hegemony at the cultural level.

Palabras clave : Right; non-electoral strategies; Latin America; memory; negationism; cultural hegemony.
