  • A Feminist Critique of the Liberal Conception of Citizenship

    • Abstract: La visión predominante de la ciudadanía en la tradición liberal, en la que se han enfatizado los derechos universales y el igual trato ante la ley, si bien valorada, resulta altamente cuestionable. En la teoría política feminista, más allá de la heterogeneidad existente entre las distintas posturas, es posible identificar algunos aspectos compartidos que permiten articular una crítica a la concepción liberal de la ciudadanía. A partir de un análisis crítico normativo de dicho concepto, el artículo argumenta a favor de la reivindicación de un universalismo diferenciado, como lo ha formulado Ruth Lister, y la necesidad de una rearticulación entre la esfera privada y la esfera pública; finalmente, se pone de relieve la importancia del universalismo diferenciado para avanzar, entre otros objetivos, hacia una más equitativa distribución de las responsabilidades al interior de la familia, de lo contrario la igualdad de la ciudadanía, en su dimensión política, continuará siendo algo meramente formal para las mujeres, cuestión que no ha sido lo suficientemente enfatizada en los debates actuales.The prevailing vision of citizenship in the liberal tradition, with its emphasis on universal rights and equal treatment under the law, is, while valued, also highly questionable from a feminist perspective. In the feminist political theory, beyond the existing heterogeneity among different positions, it is possible to identify some common aspects that provide a basis for the critique of the liberal conception of citizenship. Based on a normative critical analysis of this concept, the article argues for the vindication of a differentiated universalism, as defended by Ruth Lister, and the need for a new linkage between the public sphere and the private sphere. Finally, the article highlights the importance of a differentiated universalism in order to progress towards, among other objectives, a more equitable distribution of responsibilities within the family, since, otherwise, equality of citizenship in its political dimension will remain something merely formal for women, an issue that has not been sufficiently emphasized in current debates.
       
  • Social Policies and Women Empowerment. An Unfulfilled Commitment

    • Abstract: Aunque los gobiernos y los organismos internacionales desde la década de los noventa han reconocido la necesidad de integrar la perspectiva de género a las políticas de desarrollo, las políticas sociales no han sido capaces de encontrar una solución que tenga impacto real en la calidad de vida de las mujeres. Este artículo analiza la evolución de los programas de combate a la pobreza implementados en México que declaran haber integrado la perspectiva de género en su diseño. El objetivo es analizar hasta qué grado estos programas han sido capaces de impulsar el empoderamiento de las mujeres. Para el análisis, retomamos los conceptos de intereses estratégicos y necesidades básicas (Young, 1998); así como diferentes niveles de poder (Rowland, 1998). Estos programas hacen imposible el empoderamiento de las mujeres, ya que aunque promueven cierto grado de independencia económica en las mujeres, reproducen y refuerzan los estereotipos y roles tradicionales de género, de manera que -en última instancia- tienen impacto negativo en el bienestar de las mujeres.Since the 90's, governments and public agencies have recognized the necessity to integrate gender perspective in development policies, in order to have a real impact on women's quality of life. Nevertheless, twenty years later, this postulate is still a pending issue in public policy. This article focuses on the evolution of public policy implemented in Mexico with the purpose of both: reducing rates of extreme poverty, and improving social and economic conditions of poor women. First, we will evaluate Oportunidades, the most important anti-poverty program in the last twelve years, which explicitly claims to integrate gender perspective in its design. Later, we will evaluate the probable impact on women's empowerment of Prospera, the new anti-poverty program recently launched by the Mexican government as the next step in the efforts to alleviate poverty. This analysis considers the following theoretical approach: strategic interests and practical needs (Young, 1998), and different dimensions of power (Rowlands, 1998).
       
  • Typologies and Pathologies of State. Another Reading of State Formation
           and State Practices

    • Abstract: El presente artículo aborda la manera en que algunas comprensiones recurrentes en la Teoría Política han concebido el papel del Estado. Asimismo critica la forma como lo han reducido a un conjunto de instituciones que tienen como principal propósito garantizar el orden y proveer seguridad y estabilidad social. En tal sentido, a partir de un análisis documental, presenta algunos de los argumentos más contemporáneos en relación al fenómeno del Estado fallido, proponiendo una lectura alterna que trascienda la falla estatal en tanto distorsión del statu quo del aparato de gobierno o conjunto de instituciones ''públicas'' -burocracia, ejército, policía, tribunales, sistema de seguridad social, entre otros-, responsables de la organización colectiva de la vida social. Se presenta así una postura en la que el Estado deja de identificarse con una entidad uniforme y monolítica, para lo cual introduce algunas de las ideas contenidas en la teoría del State in Society de Joel Migdal (2001), las cuales se relacionan con un campo de estudios alternativo o dominio híbrido denominado antropología del Estado.This article critically discusses the way in which some common readings in political theory have conceived the role of the State in reducing it to a set of institutions that have as their main purpose to secure order, provide security, and social stability. The study pays special attention to the role of the State in both: the government apparatus, and in ''public'' institutions -bureaucracy, army, police, courts, social security system, etc.-, responsible for the collective organization of social life. The article also proposes a critical reading of the ''Failed State'' concept, and some theoretical elements from approaches that identify the State as a uniform and monolithic entity in introducing some of the ideas proposed in the ''State in Society'' approach by Joel Migdal (2010) that are related to an alternative field of study or interdisciplinary methodology called anthropology of the State.
       
  • The Disorganization of the Class Action in the Recent Argentina and the
           Conceptual Problems for the Study of Labor Conflict

    • Abstract: Este artículo se propone discutir algunas tendencias del conflicto obrero y su lugar en el conflicto social en Argentina desde 1989 como una aproximación a los procesos de formación y desorganización de la acción colectiva de clase de los asalariados. Simultáneamente, trata el problema de las categorías de análisis del conflicto social, particularmente el laboral, para la medición de la conflictividad. Para esto se implementó una estrategia de análisis cuantitativo del conflicto a partir de datos de producción propia y de otros investigadores. La principal hipótesis es que durante la década de 1990 se desarrolló en Argentina un proceso de desorganización de la acción de clase de los asalariados, caracterizado por la pérdida de peso social de las acciones de clase dentro del conjunto de las luchas sociales y la fragmentación de las acciones de la clase obrera. Dicho proceso puso en crisis las formas tradicionales de conceptualizar y medir el conflicto social, particularmente el obrero, y exige la adecuación de los instrumentos teóricos y metodológicos con el fin de aprehender las tendencias disímiles del conflicto obrero y social.This article discusses some trends of the labor conflict and its role in the social conflict in Argentina since 1989 as an approximation to the processes of formation and disorganization of the collective action by the salaried class. Simultaneously, it addresses the problem of the categories of analysis of the social conflict; particularly, of the labor conflict, for the measurement of the amount of conflict. In order to do this, a strategy of quantitative analysis has been implemented, whose point of departure were data of conflict both retrieved by us and from other researchers. The main hypothesis is that, during the 90s, a process of disorganization in the salaried class took place in Argentina, characterized by the loss of social force of the class action agency within the set of social struggles, and the fragmentation of the actions by the working class. This process calls into question the traditional methods for conceptualizing and measuring social conflict, particularly in the workers, and evidences the need to improve and adapt theoretical and methodological tools in order to comprehend the different trends within the social and labor conflict.
       
  • The Hegemonic Governments of the Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT) and Their
           Relationship with the Media. The 2014 Brazilian Elections and the
           Political Crisis of Dilma Rousseff's Second Administration

    • Abstract: Este artículo analiza la coyuntura que se extiende desde la campaña de las elecciones presidenciales de 2014 en Brasil hasta los primeros meses del segundo mandato de Dilma Rousseff, a partir de la perspectiva interdisciplinar de medios y política. Luego de realizar una reconstrucción de la relación entre medios y política durante los dos gobiernos de Lula da Silva y el primero de Rousseff, el artículo sugiere que durante la campaña presidencial de 2014 los principales medios de prensa intentaron perfilar inicialmente como ''candidata revelación'' a Marina Silva, proyectando sus posibilidades; al constatar que no entraría al balotaje apoyaron al candidato Aécio Neves, a la vez que buscaron involucrar a Rousseff en escándalos de corrupción. Finalmente, se considera el escenario político del segundo mandato de Rousseff, donde la candidata de la coalición de hegemonía petista, si bien ha triunfado electoralmente, se encuentra actualmente con restricciones en su accionar político originadas, entre otros factores, por su inacción en la política de regulación de los medios.This article analyzes the situation that comes from the 2014 presidential election campaign in Brazil until the first months of Dilma Rousseff second term, from the interdisciplinary perspective of ''media and politics.'' After a reconstruction of the relationship between media and politics during the two Lula Administrations and Rousseff's first term, the article suggests that during the presidential campaign of 2014, the mainstream news media initially tried to present Marina Silva as a ''breakthrough candidate,'' but when they realized that she could not win, they supported the candidate Aécio Neves, while they tried to involve Dilma Rousseff in corruption scandals. Finally, the study considers the political scene in Rousseff's second term, where the candidate of the PT coalition, although electorally successful, is currently under restrictions on her political actions due, among other factors, by the lack of media regulation.
       
  • The Uruguayan Frente Amplio in Argentina and the ''voto Buquebus''.
           Citizenship and Transnational Political Practices in the Southern Cone

    • Abstract: A partir de una etnografía multisituada que tiene como centro el colectivo uruguayo organizado en Argentina, el artículo revisa las principales contribuciones de la literatura sobre prácticas políticas transnacionales que, generalmente, analiza trayectorias migratorias Sur-Norte a fin de identificar algunos tópicos que tensan, desde la perspectiva de los actores, las dinámicas seguidas en el Cono Sur. Dicho punto se argumenta a la luz del caso empírico presentado, que sintetiza la historia del Frente Amplio de Uruguay en Argentina y la producción en perspectiva histórica del denominado ''voto Buquebus'', es decir, del desplazamiento de personas, capitales y sufragios desde Argentina hacia Uruguay para participar de las instancias electorales en este último país. A partir del caso, el artículo sugiere una serie de desafíos analíticos que pueden contribuir a problematizar los análisis existentes acerca de las prácticas políticas y el ejercicio de la ciudadanía transnacional.Using a multi-sited ethnography focused on the organized Uruguayan community in Argentina, this article makes a literature review on transnational political practices of South-North migration routes in order to identify some topics that, from the perspective of the actors, hinder the dynamics in the Southern Cone. An empirical case study, which summarizes the history of the Uruguayan Broad Front Party (Frente Amplio) in Argentina and the historical development of what is called ''voto Buquebus'', will be analyzed in order to put the literature review to the test. This case shows the movement of people, capital and votes from Argentina to Uruguay to participate in the Uruguayan elections. The article suggests a series of analytical challenges that could contribute to the complexity of existent analyses of the political practices and the exercise of transnational citizenship.
       
  • Honoring your Father and Saving the Country in No Lost Causes by Alvaro
           Uribe Velez

    • Abstract: Álvaro Uribe Vélez (2012) en sus memorias No hay causa perdida da cuenta de sus ocho años de presidencia pero también de ciertos elementos de su vida privada. Uno de los eventos que realza es el intento de secuestro y asesinato de su padre Alberto Uribe Sierra en 1983. Este evento, junto con el secuestro y muerte de otras reconocidas personalidades le sirven al narrador para recrear una atmósfera de zozobra y tensión para justificar toda su política de seguridad militar. Dado que las memorias están narradas de una manera maniquea y en la forma del thriller de suspenso, se utilizaron las herramientas de la narratología para desentrañar su alto contenido patriarcal. Básicamente, se encontró que el narrador entronca hábilmente eventos personales y de conocimiento público para justificar su lucha y la salvación de la patria. La presentación que hace el narrador de sí mismo es la de un héroe que está constantemente abocado a restituir un orden conservador y un pasado de felicidad bucólica.In his memoirs, No Lost Causes (2012), Alvaro Uribe Velez provides an account of his eight years in office while also revealing certain aspects of his private life. One of the main events depicted in the book is the attempted kidnapping and murder of his father, Alberto Uribe Sierra, in 1983. Along with the kidnapping and murder of other important personalities, this event is used by the narrator to create an atmosphere of anxiety and stress in order to justify his military approach to national security during his presidency. Since these memoirs are narrated following a Manichean style and using the format of a suspense thriller, this article uses narratology tools to unravel the patriarchal content of the memoirs, finding that the narrator skillfully connects personal events with public ones in order to justify what he interprets as his fight to save the country. The narrator presents himself as a hero who is constantly called to restore a conservative order and a past of bucolic bliss.
       
  • Emotion and Political Culture. Analysis of Public Activities Presented by
           the Bogotá Chapter of the National Movement of Victims of State Crimes
           (MOVICE)

    • Abstract: El texto propone repensar el concepto de cultura política como la lucha por el sentido de lo social, para adaptarlo a las necesidades de un trabajo cualitativo y de perspectiva microsocial, mediante la inclusión de insumos teóricos y metodológicos provenientes de las sociologías de los movimientos sociales y de las emociones. Una vez planteada esta concepción renovada de dicho concepto, el texto se ocupa del análisis de las galerías de la memoria desplegadas por el Capítulo Bogotá del Movimiento Nacional de Víctimas de Crímenes de Estado (Movice), argumentando que el principal objetivo de estos actos públicos de memoria es la transformación de la cultura política de quienes los observan, en un proceso de resocialización cognitiva, emocional y moral dirigido contra los significados, reglas emocionales y principios morales que dan soporte a determinadas estructuras y relaciones de dominación en el ámbito macrosocial.The article proposes to rethink the concept of political culture as the struggle for the construction of meaning in the social world, in an effort to adapt this concept to the needs of a qualitative research from a micro-social perspective by means of the inclusion of theoretical and methodological contributions coming from the sociologies of social movements and emotions. After this new conception is outlined, the article undertakes the analysis of the memory galleries presented by the Bogotá Chapter of the National Movement of Victims of State Crimes (MOVICE by its initials in Spanish), arguing that the main purpose of these commemorative public events is the transformation of the political culture of their observers, in a process of cognitive, emotional and moral re-socialization directed against the meanings, emotional rules and moral principles upholding certain structures and relations of domination at the macro-social level.
       
  • Recall Vote at the Municipal Level in Colombia. Lessons from Bogota's
           City Case

    • Abstract: Este artículo analiza los factores que permiten comprender por qué en algunos casos la revocatoria de mandato en el ámbito municipal logra ser activada con éxito, mientras que en otros casos se intenta activar y fracasa. Para esto se elabora un estudio comparado de casos a partir de los intentos de revocatoria de Samuel Moreno y de Gustavo Petro en Bogotá. Se argumenta que, una vez los promotores de la iniciativa han emprendido el respectivo proceso, el apoyo de al menos un líder o partido de oposición con representación política y el suficiente presupuesto para cubrir los gastos de campaña son factores clave para activar este mecanismo de participación ciudadana. Adicionalmente, se analiza empíricamente la incidencia de otros factores como los niveles de representatividad y de gobernabilidad de los alcaldes en cuestión.This article examines the factors that help to understand why in some cases the recall vote at the municipal level works successfully, while in other cases the attempts to put it in action fail. For this purpose, a comparative case study of the attempts to revoke mayors Samuel Moreno, and Gustavo Petro in Bogota city is designed. The article argues that, once the promoters of the initiative have begun the respective process, the support of at least one opposition party or leader with political representation and enough financial resources to cover the campaign expenses are two key factors to make the citizen participation mechanism work. Additionally, the impact of other factors -such as levels of representation and governance of the mayors in question- is also empirically analyzed.
       
  • Changes in Local Party Systems. Medellin, 1988-2011

    • Abstract: Este artículo estudia y describe los cambios en el sistema de partidos local de la ciudad de Medellín a partir de 1988, analizando tres dimensiones centradas en el concepto de institucionalización a partir del uso de indicadores cuantitativos, y otros aspectos de los sistemas de partidos y electoral local. El artículo encuentra que en el Concejo de Medellín hubo un cambio de un sistema bipartidista institucionalizado en 1988-1994 a uno multipartidista y menos institucionalizado después de las elecciones de 2011. Estos hallazgos contrastan con estudios sobre el sistema de partidos nacional, pues los cambios en el plano local no corresponden a los del sistema electoral y la interpretación estándar institucional. Esto invita a repensar las conclusiones de este enfoque y resalta la importancia de la comparación subnacional.This articles studies and describes the changes in the local party system of Medellín since 1988. To this effect, it analyzes three dimensions centered on the concept of institutionalization -system fragmentation, intra-party fragmentation and electoral volatility- by using quantitative indicators for these and other aspects of the local party and electoral systems. The study finds that there is a change from an institutionalized two-party system in 1988-1994 to a less institutionalized multi- party system after the 2011 elections. These findings contradict other studies on the national party systems and the standard institutional explanation by showing that transformations in the local sphere do not correspond to the changes in the electoral system nationwide. These results invite us to rethink the conclusions reached by this approach and highlight the importance of subnational comparisons.
       
  • Biopolitics and the Mechanisms of Control of Public Opinion in the Era
           of Cyberspace

    • Abstract: El presente texto se propone un esbozo general de la forma como se configura el ciberespacio y cómo este puede ser leído desde la lógica de la biopolítica, bajo una mirada crítica inaugurada por Michel Foucault y continuada por Maurizio Lazzarato, que sirve para entender cómo los espacios de simulación digital no escapan a las relaciones de poder, las cuales se basan en el control del movimiento del usuario en esta dimensión virtual, a partir de la posibilidad de marcar y predecir su trayectoria en su devenir como cibernauta. Se concluye entonces que la generación de la realidad social en este espacio telemático se diluye y se torna inmaterial, lo que acarrea que el sujeto individual se sustituye por una relación llamada biodata que no es más que información in-corporada.The article provides a general outline of the configuration of cyberspace and how it can be read from the logic of biopolitics based on the critical view founded by Michel Foucault and continued by Maurizio Lazzarato. This critical perspective helps to understand how spaces of digital simulation do not escape from power relations, which are based on the control of the user's movement in this virtual dimension. In this context, it is possible to establish and predict a cybernaut's Internet activity. The analysis finds that the generation of this online social reality becomes diluted and immaterialized; as a result, the individual is substituted by Biodata, that is, by integrated information.
       
  • University and Security. Events, Situations, and Communities

    • Abstract: El artículo expone el sentido de la seguridad en la comunidad universitaria de la Universidad de Antioquia. Se describen los rasgos de la investigación de la cual hace parte y la manera como el tema de investigación y el lugar en el cual se llevó a cabo propiciaron la ampliación de los objetivos y marcaron una ruta teórica y metodológica. A partir del enfoque de ''securitización'' y de una formulación básica según la cual la (in)seguridad es una construcción colectiva, se exploran diversos factores que intervienen en la definición de la situación en el campus universitario. El artículo concluye que por más discordante que siga siendo el significado atribuido a la ''inseguridad'', hay hechos con respecto a los cuales la definición es convergente y que, además, en los últimos años la interpretación pertenece cada vez más a los propios universitarios y no a la voluntad de agentes externos.This article discusses the sense of security in the University of Antioquia's community. In the first place, it describes how the characteristics of the research, its subject, and the place in which it was carried out leaded to broadening its objectives, and helped to establish the theoretical and methodological framework of the investigation. Secondly, the research identifies the actors involved in establishing the sense of security on campus using the securitization theory approach, and based on the hypothesis that the sense of (in)security is a collective construction. The article also explores different factors, such as values, interpretations, events, situations, actors, and contexts, involved in the construction of meaning. The main conclusion is that in spite of the diversity and contradictory meanings attributed to the so-called ''cases of insecurity,'' there is some kind of agreement on the meaning of some important cases. Moreover, the analysis shows that the community of the university is the principal actor that decides how to establish the sense of security and the cases of insecurity, instead of external actors.
