RAMIREZ BROUCHOUD, María Fernanda. State Reforms, Public Administration in Latin America and Attempts to Apply New Public Managemen. Estud. Polit. [online]. 2009, n.34, pp.115-141. ISSN 0121-5167.

The article offers an interpretation regarding State and public administration reform processes begun in the eighties in the majority of Latin American countries, taking account of the differences between so-called "first and second generation" reforms. In addition, it specifically analyzes the attempts to implement reforms based on the so-called New Public Management (NPM) and raises a series of questions and problems surrounding their complex application.

Keywords : State Reform; Public Administration; Public Management; Latin America.
