Peruzzotti, Enrique, "The Nature Of The New Argentine Democracy. The Delegative Democracy Argument Revisited", Journal of Latin American Studies, Vol. 33, Part I, February 2001.
O Donnell's diagnosis regarding the delegative nature of the new Latin American democracies has won wide acceptance in current debates on institutional consolidation. Through the analysis of the Argentine case, the article will challenge the delegative democracy argument as one-sided. The delegativeness hypothesis, it will be argued, turns a blind eye to the truly innovative processes that have taken place within Argentine society and that make this democratizing wave distinctive.
This volume explores one of the crucial intersections of political and economic change: how the reform of the central state in the form of policies of decentralization has affected democratic governance in different countries and at different levels of society.The book is a product of a two-year project on decentralization which included both national-level and comparative research.
