Peruzzotti, Enrique, "Redefiniendo La Representación Política: La Sociedad Civil Argentina Y El Sistema Representativo En Los Noventa", Política y Gobierno, Vol. XI, Número 1, México, 2004.

Jul 07, 2011

Por el contrario, es un conflicto entre la sociedad civil y política sobre qué constituye el gobierno representativo, que se remonta a los primeros momentos de la transición a la democracia. El conflicto revela el surgimiento de una ciudadanía más sofisticada, que está determinada a redefinir ideales preexistentes de representación democrática, con el fin de adaptarlos a una nueva preocupación de "accountability" gubernamental.Ver www.politicaygobierno.cide.edu more

The rapidly globalizing world means that these consequences transcend boundaries and threaten stability of both the developed and developing world. It is therefore common sense that a search for the reversal of this disturbing trend becomes a global collective. more
