ALZA BARCO, Carlos  and  DYER CRUZADO, Henry. Capacity and Strategy in Pension Reform. Apuntes [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.79, pp.47-78. ISSN 0252-1865.

The pension system for public servants referred to as «20530» or the «cédula viva» caused severe fiscal damage to the Peruvian state until its reform in 2004. The reform was particularly difficult to accomplish because a number of senior officials and former government authorities were elite beneficiaries of this pension regime. In this article, we explore the reform process led by a government agency, identifying this agency’s capacity and the implementation of a strategy of visibilization as key factors.
