Mecanismos de Democracia Directa en Argentina a nivel sub-nacional: Un recurso latente e ignorado


Arques, Facundo (2014). Mecanismos de Democracia Directa en Argentina a nivel sub-nacional: Un recurso latente e ignorado. c2d Working Papers Series 46, Centre for Democracy Studies Aarau (ZDA) at the University of Zurich.

Abstract

The expansion of mechanisms of direct democracy in Latin America took place in a context of a serious crisis of political legitimacy which was especially acute during the last decades of the 20th and the first one of the 21st century. In Argentina mechanisms of direct democracy on the national level were introduced during the constitutional reforms of 1994 - although in a very limited way, addressing parliament. On the sub-national level where the provinces and municipalities have more leeway the picture looks somewhat different.
In the present working paper we identify the main characteristics of Argentina's instruments of direct democracy on the sub-national level (provinces and municipalities), analyse their main institutional designs and make a beginning for an exploratory analysis on how these mechanisms are put into practice in the provinces. The analysis makes use of data elaborated from all provincial constitutions and 135 municipal charters.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
