Working Class Politics and Labour Internationalism in Latin America: An Overview of Labour International Organisations in the Region During the Interwar Period (1919–1939)

Research output: Chapter in book/volumeChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the institutional and political development of international labour organisations in Latin America in the inter-war period, paying attention to their relative influence on the working classes and to the way in which they addressed key political issues of the time. It provides a historical account of the Pan-American Federation of Labor, the Asociación Continental Americana de Trabajadores, the Confederación Sindical Latinoamericana and the Central de Trabajadores de América Latina. The chapter shows that global trends played a key role in shaping labour politics in the region, but at the same time it argues that there were particularities that need to be taken into account to properly understand the development of labour internationalism in Latin America.
