Existing studies of Anglo-Argentine relations offer various explanations for policy and diplomatic outcomes between Britain and Argentina. This paper presents a constructivist analysis of British perceptions and framing of Argentina in elite political discourse. British perceptions of Argentina are necessary to understand outcomes of particular moments of economic cooperation and military conflict between the two states in the twentieth century. British political rhetoric and discourse are used to show how durable perceptions of Argentina can be traced throughout the history of their relationship and end up shaping relations in 1930s and 1980s.
