Latin America between the dismantling of the state and the rise of social mobilization. The complexity of rural development in North East Argentina

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding

Abstract

This paper presents some preliminary empirical reflexions about rural development in North
East Argentina at the light of the recent socio-economic and political changes. The processes of decentralization that have taken place in the country during the decade of 1990 illustrate the complexity of rural development strategies at local level and the necessity to create policies to take into account the collective actions from below or to promote them in those territories where they do not exist. These kind of collective actions are considered by some authors to play an important role in processes of democratization.
