Evolution of the Notion of Citizenship in Latin America and Effect in Argentina

Author(s): Perez Gamon Carolina Margarita


With this research we aspire to critically reconstruct the concept of citizenship, taking into account the new actors and the changes in thinking. Our objective is to determine and recognize how these changes have been achieved in Latin America and what echo it has in Argentina. For this, we will consider the concept of social citizenship in order to develop a look at the social bases that must be built for democracy, which will guide us to a debate on citizenship and indigenous rights. It draws attention that, at least in some nations in the region, new social and political forces are challenging the established ways of "doing politics", and suggests reexamining the political class and systems to ensure citizen inclusion. The methodology that we apply in this work is based on a review of different theoretical approaches related to citizenship that we compare with the main ongoing debates. We show that, consequently, the efforts of groups considered to be minority become more visible in the public sphere. In conclusion, citizenship is a topic of great interest for contemporary reflections in the social and human sciences. Its renewed importance is due, among other things, to a plurality of political, economic and social changes present in the region.
