  • The Value of Discourse Analysis in Comparative Public Policy Studies. The
           Case of Higher Education Quality Assurance in Colombia and Ecuador

    • Abstract: Una evaluación de política puede enriquecerse de metodologías cualitativas en aras de profundizar el entendimiento del investigador sobre la política, que muchas veces obedece a criterios positivistas y se concentra en mostrar los avances cuantitativos de sus logros. En este sentido, este artículo declara y muestra evidencia del valor del análisis de discurso en el marco de estudios comparativos de política pública, ampliando la capacidad de entender el contexto histórico, cultural, social y simbólico en el cual la política es construida e implementada. Como ilustración, se examinan las reformas en políticas públicas para el aseguramiento de la calidad de las instituciones de educación superior (IES) y sus programas en Colombia y Ecuador, aplicando el método de análisis de discurso para examinar si la política identifica y explica objetivos, problemas, retos y soluciones de maneras similares o no, ayudando a apreciar cómo las palabras representan valores, a entender mejor a las instituciones, y a evaluar la estabilidad o la falta de ella en las políticas públicas. Los resultados sugieren que el método revela diferencias significativas que los datos y estudios cuantitativos ocultan.Generally, the evaluation of a public policy is often based on positivist criteria, with a focus on showing quantitative evidence of progress and achievement. To convert this information into truly useful feedback, a policy study could be enriched through the use of qualitative methodologies, in order to deepen the understanding of the policy within its unique context. In this sense, this paper makes the case for and provides evidence of the value of discourse analysis in comparative policy studies. As one method of qualitative analysis, discourse analysis provides the researcher with the capacity to consider the historical, cultural, social and symbolic context in which a policy is developed and implemented. This approach adds additional value to the quantitative data and can reveal flaws and strengths that the more superficial quantitative methods do not reveal. As an illustration, we examine reforms in public policies for quality assurance of higher education institutions and programs in Colombia and Ecuador. We apply the method of discourse analysis to examine whether the policies in the two countries define objectives, problems, challenges, and solutions in similar or dissimilar ways. Discourse analysis helps us appreciate the values represented in the words, better understand the institutions, and assess the stability (or lack thereof) in these public policies. Our research demonstrates that the methods of discourse analysis reveals important differences that the quantitative data and studies obscure.
       
  • Diplomacy in Transition. The People's Republic of China Facing the Chilean
           Civic-Military Dictatorship

    • Abstract: El artículo indaga por qué la República Popular de China (RPC) no rompió relaciones con el régimen de Pinochet en Chile como lo hizo la Unión Soviética y, en términos más generales, en qué aspectos esta situación representa un cambio fundamental en la política exterior de la RPC. Se plantea que China mantuvo y posteriormente potenció sus relaciones con el régimen militar chileno por dos razones estructurales: el proyecto político-diplomático y el proyecto económico. A partir de un abordaje crítico y sistémico de las relaciones sino-chilenas, se propone un análisis de la política exterior china que vincula la configuración político-ideológica doméstica con el cuestionamiento de la hegemonía en el ámbito global. Finalmente, se sostiene que la relación con el Chile de Pinochet tenía una doble dimensión para China: por un lado, debía mantener su proyecto político-diplomático, apoyándose en su amistad con países del Tercer Mundo; por el otro, veía con interés el proyecto económico de la dictadura militar, que parecía exitoso en su liberalización económica sin democratizaciónThe current article enquires why the People's Republic of China (PRC) did not break diplomatic ties with Pinochet's regime following the Soviet Union. On a more general level, it portends which aspects of such event represent a fundamental change on the PRC's overall foreign policy. The research argues that China maintained and subsequently boosted its engagements with the Chilean military regime for two structural reasons: the politico-diplomatic project, and the economic project. It proposes an analysis of China's foreign policy that links the domestic political configuration with the challenge of global hegemony. Finally, the article concludes that China's relationship with Pinochet's regime was double-faced: on the one side, it must advance its politico-diplomatic project, relying on its friendship with Third World countries; and on the other, China took interest on the dictatorship's economic agenda, which seemed to be successful in handling financial liberalisation without democratisation.
       
  • The Arise of the Anti-Corporate Political Conception of the Frente para la
           Victoria in Argentina

    • Abstract: Este artículo indaga sobre la relación entre la trayectoria social y política de los principales miembros del Frente para la Victoria (FPV), fuerza política que gobernó en Argentina entre 2003 y 2015, y un tipo de concepción política que atravesó sus sucesivos gobiernos, la lucha anticorporativa. El artículo muestra sus antecedentes y orígenes en la provincia de Santa Cruz, territorio donde surgió esta organización -originalmente Frente para la Victoria Santacruceña (FVS)- hacia fines de la década de 1980 y durante la década de 1990. Se analizaron datos de entrevistas semiestructuradas, diarios y revistas provinciales, documentos parlamentarios, archivos partidarios, decretos de necesidad y urgencia, leyes y bases de trayectorias sociales y políticas. Como se expone, el carácter marginal de la elite del FVS dio forma a una fuerza política que definió su identidad posicionándose y actuando ''por fuera'' de relaciones de intercambio con los grupos políticos y sociales representativos de la sociedad.This article explores the relationship between the social and political trajectory of the main members of the Front for Victory (El Frente para la Victoria), the political party that governed Argentina from 2003 until 2015, and the political thinking that this political party established through its time in office: ''the anti-corporate activism.'' This article analyses the background and origins of the FVA in the province of Santa Cruz, the territory in which this organization (originally called Frente para la Victoria Santacruceña) originated in the late 80's and during the 90's. To this aim, we analyzed data from semi-structured interviews, newspapers, local magazines, parliamentary records, party archives, necessary and urgent decrees, laws, and social and political biographies. The investigation shows that the marginalization of the FVS elite in the political landscape defined the identity of the political party. Thus, positioning the party ''outside'' the relations of political exchange among political and social groups that represented the society.
       
  • Local Public Agenda. The Cases of the Municipalities of Carmen de Viboral,
           and Turbo, Antioquia-Colombias

    • Abstract: La conformación de la agenda gubernamental en los municipios de El Carmen de Viboral y Turbo recorrió caminos diferentes. En el primer caso, se propuso una Asamblea Municipal como espacio de participación en el marco de la formulación del Plan de Desarrollo; en el segundo caso, se prefirió la contratación de un consultor externo para la elaboración del Plan de Desarrollo y hubo escasa participación ciudadana. Mediante un estudio de caso, apoyado en el análisis documental y el enfoque de corrientes múltiples para el estudio de la agenda pública, se observan formas diferenciadas de conformar la agenda, así como de aprovechar la participación de las comunidades en este proceso. También se observa que a pesar de las capacidades y fortalezas que trae consigo la presencia de la universidad pública en estos municipios, la incidencia de la Universidad de Antioquia en la configuración de la agenda local es escasa.The formation of the government agenda in the municipalities of El Carmen de Viboral and Turbo underwent different paths. In the first case, the local government proposed a municipal assembly as a space for citizen participation for the formulation of the development plan. In the second case, the local government hired an outside consultant to prepare the development plan with little public participation. The analysis of the case study, supported by a documentary analysis and a multiple streams approach of the study of public agenda, shows different ways for setting the public agenda and of community participation in this process. It is also noted that, despite the skills and strengths of the presence of the public university in these municipalities, the incidence of the University of Antioquia in setting the local agenda is scarce.
       
  • Memory and Community in the Experience of Vulnerability. The Commemorative
           Wall of Santo Domingo Savio

    • Abstract: Este artigo aborda a criação de uma iniciativa de memória em Medellín, Colômbia: um mural com os nomes das pessoas assassinadas no bairro Santo Domingo Sávio. Analisa-se a relação entre as concepções de memória, comum e comunidade a partir de várias perguntas: o que acontece quando se decide lembrar dos assassinos no mesmo espaço das vítimas' Por que o reconhecimento é central na discussão pública sobre a memória' Há lutos legítimos e outros ilegítimos' Quais são as vidas que contam' Trata-se de uma análise feita a partir dos resultados de duas pesquisas de doutorado com ênfase nos conceitos de comunidade, memória e identidade. Conclui-se que para o caso do mural em Santo Domingo Sávio o comum para esse coletivo é a perda e a vulnerabilidade perante a violência, o que vincula os seus habitantes é menos uma identidade positiva que o reconhecimento da falta, a vulnerabilidade e enfrentar-se com a finitude que afeta a todos.Este artículo aborda la creación de una iniciativa de memoria en Medellín, Colombia: un mural con los nombres de personas asesinadas en el barrio Santo Domingo Sávio. Se analiza la relación entre las concepciones de memoria, común y comunidad a partir de varias preguntas: ¿qué sucede cuando se decide recordar a los asesinos en el mismo espacio de las víctimas', ¿por qué el reconocimiento es central en la discusión pública sobre la memoria', ¿hay lutos legítimos y otros ilegítimos', ¿cuáles son las vidas que cuentan' Se trata de un análisis hecho a partir de los resultados de dos investigaciones de doctorado con énfasis en los conceptos de comunidad, memoria e identidad. Se concluye que para el caso del mural en Santo Domingo Sávio lo común para ese colectivo es la pérdida y la vulnerabilidad frente a la violencia, lo que vincula a sus habitantes es menos una identidad positiva que el reconocimiento de la falta, la vulnerabilidad y enfrentarse con la finitud que los afecta a todos.This article describes the creation of a memory initiative in Medellín, Colombia: a commemorative wall with the names of the people murdered in Santo Domingo Savio's neighborhood. Based on this description, the authors analyze the relations among the conceptions of memory, common, and community, and call into question the consequences of commemorating the murderers in the same space of the victims. Why is recognition central for the public discussion on memory' Is there a legitimate and an illegitimate way of mourning' Which lives really matter' The analysis is carried out from the results of two doctoral researches with emphasis on the concepts of community, common and identity. The article concludes that in the case of the commemorative wall of Santo Domingo Savio, what is common to this group are the feelings of loss and vulnerability in facing violence. As a result, what relates the members of this territory is less a positive identity than the recognition of their losses as well as their common dealing with finitude and death.
       
  • Compassion as a Normative Source for Victims' Rights. A Plea under the
           Framework of Political Philosophy

    • Abstract: El presente artículo se propone sustentar la tesis de que la compasión debe ser la fuente del derecho y la moral de un proceso que piense en un tipo de justicia y de paz protectora de los derechos de las víctimas. Se contextualiza la propuesta de la compasión en el escenario del proceso de paz en Colombia con el propósito de dilucidar el tipo de justicia y su relación con el derecho de las víctimas. Posteriormente, se realiza un análisis basado en la Filosofía política acerca de las emociones morales y la compasión para la acción moral, estableciendo sus límites y alcances. Se parte los antecedentes de la propuesta filosófico-política de John Rawls hasta su teoría de la justicia. Con base en la metodología del análisis documental sobre las emociones morales y la compasión, se argumenta que la compasión puede ser el ethos de las negociaciones de paz que permita respetar el derecho de las víctimas y recuperar su dignidad humana, moral y civil.This article claims that compassion should be the source of law and morality in order to bring justice and peace as well as to protect victims' rights. First, the author contextualizes the concept of compassion in the scenario of the peace process in Colombia with the purpose of establishing the type of justice aimed at and its relation to victims' rights. Next, the author uses the framework of John Rawls' political philosophy and his theory of justice in order to analyze moral emotions and compassion in their relation to moral action. The author argues that compassion should be the ethos of the peace process, since it can further respect for the rights of victims and help to the recovery of their human, moral and civil dignity.
       
  • Rethinking Socio-Environmental Conflicts from an Eco-Governmentality in
           Friction

    • Abstract: El presente artículo busca realizar un aporte al análisis de los conflictos socioambientales desde el enfoque teórico-metodológico de la ecología política latinoamericana, a partir de problematizar las conexiones globales-locales. Parte de entender que el espacio local y el global se nutren mutuamente y uno no puede comprenderse sin la existencia del otro. En este marco, retoma los planteamientos sobre la gubernamentalidad global formulado por Fraser (2003) y de lagubernamentalidad transnacional desarrollado por Ferguson y Gupta (2002), y los revisa a la luz del concepto de fricción (Tsing, 2005) y de lugar (Escobar, 2010). Se propone eliminar la asimetría entre lo global y lo local para repensar los conflictos latinoamericanos actuales a partir de una ecogubernamentalidad en fricción. Este enfoque permite dar cuenta de las múltiples relaciones de poder y desigualdad en que se inscriben estos conflictos, y de cómo estas relaciones operan a escala transnacional, nacional y local, configurando formas particulares de explotación, apropiación, distribución, regulación, activismo y resistencia, en donde las prácticas cotidianas producen políticas más allá de lo establecido y definido en los programas y modelos globales.This article seeks to make a contribution to the analysis of socio-environmental conflicts from the theoretical and methodological framework of political ecology, and calls into question the global-local connections. It is important to point out that the local and the global nourish each other, and, for this reason, none of them can be understood without the existence of its correlative. In this context, the article employs Nancy Fraser's proposals of global governmentality (2003), Ferguson's and Gupta's (2002) concept of transnational governmentality, and analyses them with the aid of the concepts of friction (Tsing, 2005) and place (Escobar, 2010). The author presents a theoretical approach to address the socio-environmental conflicts and proposes to eliminate the asymmetry between the ''global'' and ''local'' in order to rethink the current conflicts in Latin America from an eco-governmentality in friction. This approach provides an account of multiple relations of power and inequality, and the manner in which they operate at a transnational, national and local level enabling particular ways of exploitation, appropriation, distribution, regulation, activism and resistance, whose daily practice produce policies beyond the ones established and defined by global programs and models.
       
  • Covered Violences in Global Governance

    • Abstract: El artículo problematiza las premisas ontológicas con las que la gobernanza global -como concepto y como proyecto político- se concibe y cómo esto institucionaliza y perpetúa la exclusión a través de violencias encubiertas que habilitan ciertas formas de ser y estar en el mundo, entre ellas, procesos de construcción del otro, la aceptación de una manera de conocer la realidad, restringiendo la posibilidad de pensar lo político global por otras vías. A partir de un enfoque crítico que toma argumentos posestructuralistas y poscolonialistas de las Relaciones Internacionales, se propone que existen alternativas que provienen de cosmovisiones diferentes que no solo pueden utilizarse para abordar los problemas desde otras perspectivas, que dan luces sobre otra forma de pensar la gobernanza global.The article problematizes the ontological assumptions under which global governance -as a concept and as a political project- is conceived, and how this institutionalizes and perpetuates the exclusion through covered violences that habilitate certain forms of being in the world. Among them, the process of constructing the Other and the acceptance of a determined form of knowing reality, restricting the possibility of thinking the political in other possible ways. Drawing from International Relations' critical perspectives such as poststructuralism and postcolonialism, some insights are offered to think of global governance differently
       
  • Political Clientelism. A Diffuse Concept but Useful for the Analysis of
           Local Politics

    • Abstract: A pesar de que aún el concepto de clientelismo político es difuso, es una herramienta conceptual y metodológica útil para el análisis sobre política local. Tradicionalmente, la Ciencia Política ha producido trabajos basados en perspectivas teóricas y empíricas que han ayudado a comprender el fenómeno como un mecanismo de intermediación que se desarrolla a través de ''redes clientelares'', en las que se generan dinámicas y estrategias de trabajo para establecer relaciones con el entorno o con la ciudadanía en general. En estas relaciones se visualiza su mecanismo principal: el intercambio de recursos. La claridad sobre dichos aspectos facilita entender la forma como se ha ejercido la política en Colombia y la lógica que hoy predomina en su sistema político respecto a la competencia por el poder en escenarios locales. El estudio se realiza mediante la metodología cualitativa y su estrategia de revisión documental, lo que permite realizar una comparación conceptual permanente.This article shows that even though the concept of political clientelism is diffuse, it is a good conceptual and methodological tool for the analysis of local politics. In the tradition, Political Science have produced some works from theoretical and empirical looks, that have helped to understand the phenomenon, as a mechanism of intermediation that develops through ''clientelism networks'', where in its inside, there are generated dynamic and work strategies to build relationships with the environment or citizens in general. In these relationships is where it is displayed its main mechanism: the sharing of resources. Clarity on these issues facilitates understanding the way how politics is practiced in Colombia and the logic that prevails today in the political system, over the competition for the power in local scenarios. To reach these conclusions, the study was based on qualitative methodology, with the document review strategy, which allowed making a permanent conceptual comparison.

Tradicionalmente, la Ciencia Política ha producido trabajos basados en perspectivas teóricas y empíricas que han ayudado a comprender el fenómeno como un mecanismo de intermediación que se desarrolla a través de ''redes clientelares'', en las que se generan dinámicas y estrategias de trabajo para establecer relaciones con el entorno o con la ciudadanía en general. En estas relaciones se visualiza su mecanismo principal: el intercambio de recursos. La claridad sobre dichos aspectos facilita entender la forma como se ha ejercido la política en Colombia y la lógica que hoy predomina en su sistema político respecto a la competencia por el poder en escenarios locales. El estudio se realiza mediante la metodología cualitativa y su estrategia de revisión documental, lo que permite realizar una comparación conceptual permanente.This article shows that even though the concept of political clientelism is diffuse, it is a good conceptual and methodological tool for the analysis of local politics. In the tradition, Political Science have produced some works from theoretical and empirical looks, that have helped to understand the phenomenon, as a mechanism of intermediation that develops through ''clientelism networks'', where in its inside, there are generated dynamic and work strategies to build relationships with the environment or citizens in general. In these relationships is where it is displayed its main mechanism: the sharing of resources. Clarity on these issues facilitates understanding the way how politics is practiced in Colombia and the logic that prevails today in the political system, over the competition for the power in local scenarios. To reach these conclusions, the study was based on qualitative methodology, with the document review strategy, which allowed making a permanent conceptual comparison.
       
  • Education and Public Policy in Brazil. From the Pioneering Initiatives of
           the 60's to the Institutionalization of the ''Public Field''

    • Abstract: O artigo analisa a formação em política pública no Brasil a partir da recuperação de iniciativas pioneiras na área de Administração Pública e de Ciência Política e da discussão do movimento recente de constituição de um novo campo de estudos e formação. Baseia-se em análise da literatura sobre o campo de políticas públicas e sobre a institucionalização das duas disciplinas, apoiando-se ainda na análise da presença das políticas públicas no currículo de cursos de diferentes áreas. O artigo mostra como as primeiras iniciativas de institucionalização do campo de política pública não se orientaram para uma formação independente, mas privilegiaram o desenvolvimento de estudos e pesquisas. A expansão recente de cursos que abordam políticas públicas foi acompanhada por mudanças nesse cenário. Uma comunidade discursiva mobilizou-se pela institucionalização de um novo campo multidisciplinar, designado pelos participantes como ''campo de públicas''. Esse processo está reconfigurando o campo de políticas públicas, em que assume centralidade a formação.Este artículo aborda la formación en política pública en Brasil a partir de la reconstitución de las iniciativas pioneras en las áreas de Administración Pública y de Ciencia Política, y de la discusión del movimiento reciente de constitución de un nuevo campo de estudios y formación. Se analiza la literatura sobre el campo de políticas públicas en Brasil y sobre la institucionalización de las dos disciplinas, apoyándose en el estudio de la presencia de las políticas públicas en el currículo de cursos de distintas áreas. El artículo muestra cómo las primeras iniciativas de institucionalización del campo de políticas públicas no se han orientado hacia una formación independiente, y en cambio han privilegiado estudios e investigaciones. La expansión reciente de cursos que tratan de políticas públicas provocan cambios en este escenario, una comunidad discursiva se ha movilizado por la institucionalización de un nuevo campo multidisciplinar, designado por los participantes como ''campo de públicas''. Ese proceso ha producido una reconfiguración del campo de políticas públicas, en que asume centralidad la formación.This article analyses the education in public policy in Brazil, beginning with the account of the first initiatives in Public Administration and Political Science and, then, addressing the discussion of a recent movement that seeks to establish a new academic field on the subject. The article is based on the literature review of public policy in Brazil and the institutionalization of Public Administration and Political Science as disciplines; it also take in account the analysis of the presence of the study of public policies in the curriculum of the programs in different areas. The investigation shows that the first initiatives for the institutionalization of public policy as a discipline did not include the establishment of independent courses in the curricula, but had a focus on research. However, the expansion of programs that include public policy in their curricula since the last decade brought changes to this scenario. Moreover, the role of an active community has been crucial for the institutionalization of a new multidisciplinary field, named by the participants the ''public field.'' This process is now redefining the institutionalization of public policy in Brazil, which brings education to the fore.
       
  • The Institutional Development of Administration and Public Policy in
           

    • Abstract: Este trabajo se propone indagar sobre los programas de Administración y Políticas Públicas en licenciatura, maestría y doctorado en Argentina, desde el proceso democratizador hasta la actualidad, partiendo de un enfoque ''metateórico'' integrando aportes de la Epistemología, la Sociología del conocimiento y de la Educación, y de la Historia de la ciencia. Se presenta una orientación general de la distribución geográfica de los mismos, sus diseños curriculares y perfil del egresado. En el caso de los programas de posgrado, se tiene en cuenta el resultado de la evaluación emitida por la Comisión Nacional de Evaluación y Acreditación Universitaria (Coneau). En el caso de los ciclos de licenciatura se tendrá en cuenta los perfiles propuestos y su articulación con la propuesta institucional y su inserción en el área de influencia. Esto permite sostener que se ha registrado un incremento significativo en el desarrollo del campo, centrado principalmente en los posgrados, destacándose una marcada desarticulación entre los aspectos académico formativos y la gestión pública que plantea algunos dilemas en las estrategias de estructuración del proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje en esta área del conocimiento.This article investigates the Administration and Public Policy in the BA, MA and Ph.D programs in Argentina from the democratizing process until today, from a ''meta-theoretical'' approach integrating contributions of epistemology, sociology of knowledge and education, and history of science. The authors outline a general guidance of the geographical distribution thereof, their curriculum, and graduate profile. In the case of graduate programs, we take into account the outcome of the evaluation issued by the National Assessment and Accreditation (CONEAU). In the case of the degree cycles we will take into account the proposed profiles and their articulation with the institutional proposal and its insertion in the surrounding area. As a result, we maintain that there has been a significant increase in the development of the field, focused primarily on MA programs, highlighting a marked lack of coordination between the formative and academic aspects, and the public management. This situation raises some dilemmas in the strategies for structuring the teaching and learning process in this area of knowledge.
       
  • The Coloniality of Knowledge in the Teaching of Public Policies in
           Educational Institutions of Higher Education in Mexico

    • Abstract: El artículo aborda el enfoque técnico e instrumental que predomina en la enseñanza de las políticas públicas dentro de instituciones de educación superior en México -tanto en pregrado como en posgrado-, para hacer notar los vacíos que hay en el conocimiento pero también para destacar la necesidad de desarrollar enfoques teóricos y metodológicos que posibiliten un análisis de políticas públicas congruente con las problemáticas propias del contexto mexicano. En ese tenor, los argumentos de la teoría decolonial resultan útiles para analizar y reflexionar sobre los enfoques teóricos y metodológicos que se encuentran en los programas de estudio de políticas públicas. Se pretende destacar la necesidad de formular alternativas para consolidar un campo propio de estudio y análisis de políticas públicas, y recuperar algunos elementos de la antropología de las políticas públicas y de la decolonialidad para otra formación de los especialistas en ese campo.The article discusses the technical and instrumental approach that predominates in the teaching of public policies within Mexican educational institutions, both undergraduate and graduate; with the purpose of noting the gaps that exist in knowledge but also to highlight the need to develop theoretical and methodological approaches that enable an analysis of public policies consistent with our own problematic context. In that vein, the arguments of the decolonial theory are useless to analyze and reflect on the theoretical and methodological contents found in the curricula of public policies. The cases analyzed for this purpose do not constitute a representative sample in a statistical sense, but follow specific selection criteria: the importance of the institutions in the national context, availability of information, and postgraduate programs with emphasis on public policies. The aim of this analysis is first, to highlight the need to formulate alternatives to consolidate the study of public policies as a field in its own right, and, second, to reclaim some elements provided by the anthropology of public policies and decoloniality in order to enable a different kind of training of the specialists in this field.
       
  • Teaching Public Policy Analysis in Political Science Graduate Program's
           in Colombia

    • Abstract: En América Latina las políticas públicas han ganado un lugar significativo tanto en los discursos políticos como en la academia. Prácticamente desconocido hasta finales de la década de 1980, el concepto de política pública es hoy un lugar común para señalar el trabajo gubernamental en pro de resolver, mitigar o regular algún problema o asunto público, o para invocar su necesidad. Su desarrollo académico -y por tanto, su enseñanza- no se encuentra desligado de las concepciones que prevalecen en materia de relaciones entre Estado y sociedad, y de perspectivas epistemológicas. Este artículo sintetiza la evolución del campo de estudio y el contexto de su introducción en América Latina y Colombia; luego, a partir del análisis de los contenidos curriculares y bibliográficos de las asignaturas de pregrado en las carreras de Ciencia Política y afines de diecinueve universidades, se busca caracterizar el campo del análisis de políticas públicas en Colombia. Los resultados de la investigación muestran la fuerte presencia del enfoque neorracionalista y de la importancia de los libros de textos en español publicados en Colombia, concluyendo con una discusión relativa a la posible autonomización institucional del análisis de políticas públicas.Policy analysis -as a specific field of study and training in political science- has known an important development in the last two decades in Latin America. The article synthesizes the stages and the context of the general development of this field of study focusing on Latin America and Colombia. The author seeks to characterize the field of policy analysis in Colombia starting from the analysis of curricula, course content, the bibliographic material employed in the undergraduate careers of Political Science, as well as through the consideration of the theoretical approaches, methodologies, and the most referenced texts and authors in the programs. The results of the research show a strong presence of the neo-rationalist approach and the wide use of textbooks in Spanish language published in Colombia. The article concludes with a discussion on the institutional autonomy of public policy analysis in the country.
