LUCCA, Juan Bautista. Comparative Politics in Mexico: a qualitative portrait. Rev. Urug. Cienc. Polít. [online]. 2021, vol.30, n.2, pp.123-148.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-9789.

From a political common sense in México, comparative politics is usually characterized as parochial and / or Americanized. Numerous studies have tended to debate this presumption, but only a few have taken into account the cosmovisions and opinions of Mexican comparativists. Therefore, through the qualitative analysis of in-depth interviews carried out with the specialists in comparative politics in Mexico, we will have to weigh to what extent parochialism and Americanization are part of the analytical and interpretive prisms in this country, and what are the obstacles and incentives for the configuration of a comparative political sensibility and / or tradition in said country.

Keywords : comparative politics; México; parrochialism; exceptionalism; americanization.
