Comparto la información para que no pierdan la oportunidad de descargarlos:

1. «Policy Entrepreneurs and Dynamic Change«, por Michael Mintrom, Monash University, Victoria

Disponible hasta el 18 de noviembre.


«Policy entrepreneurs are energetic actors who engage in collaborative efforts in and around government to promote policy innovations. Interest in policy entrepreneurs has grown over recent years. Increasingly, they are recognized as a unique class of political actors, who display common attributes, deploy common strategies, and can propel dynamic shifts in societal practices. This Element assesses the current state of knowledge on policy entrepreneurs, their actions, and their impacts. It explains how various global forces are creating new demand for policy entrepreneurship, and suggests directions for future research on policy entrepreneurs and their efforts to drive dynamic change.»

2. «Partnerships that Last: Identifying the Keys to Resilient Collaboration«, por Heather Getha-Taylor, University of Kansas

Disponible hasta el 18 de noviembre.


«Communities across the United States face a variety of vexing and intractable problems that are not easily – or quickly – solved by any one organization or sector. Rather, partners must work together over time to address these shared priorities. It also requires an individual and collective ability to overcome the challenges and setbacks that arise along the way, a key question emerges: what keeps community partnerships strong over time? This Element compares and contrasts a sample of enduring voluntary partnerships with those that have ended to identify the features that contribute to collaborative resilience, or the ability of partnerships to respond productively to shocks and change over time.»

3. «Neo-extractivism in Latin America: Socio-environmental Conflicts, the Territorial Turn, and New Political Narratives«, por Maristella Svampa, Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina

Disponible hasta el 18 de noviembre.


«This Element analyses the political dynamics of neo-extractivism in Latin America. It discusses the critical concepts of neo-extractivism and the commodity consensus and the various phases of socio-environmental conflict, proposing an eco-territorial approach that uncovers the escalation of extractive violence. It also presents horizontal concepts and debates theories that explore the language of Latin American socio-environmental movements, such as Buen Vivir and Derechos de la Naturaleza. In concluding, it proposes an explanation for the end of the progressive era, analyzing its ambiguities and limitations in the dawn of a new political cycle marked by the strengthening of the political rights.»
