    Description: Este artículo examina las dinámicas en torno a los mecanismos de participación ciudadana que se han activado en fronteras extractivas de Colombia desde 2004 con el fin de proteger las fuentes de agua, los territorios y los medios de vida campesinos. Los casos demuestran que ha habido dos olas de democratización ambiental en Colombia, que existe una sinergia entre los instrumentos de deliberación y de participación, tensiones entre la democracia participativa y la representativa, y que los discursos sobre el agua constituyen un hilo conductor que unifica la movilización para la democratización ambiental en el contexto de los conflictos socio ambientales. La emergencia de, y las barreras a, la democratización ambiental se analizan como dos tendencias opuestas constituidas por diferentes capas de lógicas y estrategias. Vistas en el contexto nacional, las movilizaciones sociales en las fronteras extractivas están reinterpretando la democracia, fortaleciendo las luchas por la justicia ambiental y poniendo de manifiesto las contradicciones del capitalismo. La respuesta de la sociedad en general a estas iniciativas tiene implicaciones importantes para el futuro de modelos económicos menos destructivos y para la democracia misma.
    Description: This article examines the dynamics around citizen participation mechanisms activated in the extractive frontiers of Colombia since 2004 to protect water sources, territories, and peasant livelihoods. The cases show that there have been two waves of environmental democratisation in Colombia; that there is synergy between the instruments of deliberation and participation, as well as tension between participatory and representative democracy; and that water discourses are a common thread that unifies mobilisation for environmental democratisation in the context of socio-environmental conflicts. The emergence of and barriers to environmental democratisation are analysed as two opposing trends constituted by different logics and strategies. Viewed in the national context, the social mobilisations emerging in extractive frontiers are reinterpreting democracy, strengthening claims for environmental justice, and making evident the contradictions of capitalism. The response of the broader society has important implications for the future of less destructive economic models and for democracy itself.

    Description: En vista de la creciente competencia por el agua, existe el peligro que particularmente los pobres en las áreas rurales enfrenten cada día más dificultades para cubrir sus necesidades de agua para usos domésticos y productivos. El presente DIIS Working Paper fue elaborado con base a una encuesta llevada a cabo en el año 2008, en el municipio de Condega, Nicaragua; en él se expone un perfil de pobreza de los hogares rurales y se analiza el acceso al agua que tienen los hogares más pobres, menos pobres y no pobres; además de sus contactos con las instituciones que juegan un papel en la gobernanza de agua.

    Description: This article analyzes the support for democracy in Chile from an economic, institutional and political perspective. It uses data from Latinobarómetro for the period 1996-2007 and a statistical method of estimation, 'ordered logit', in order to answer the question of why support for Chilean democracy is not connected with economic growth. The analysis generates three key results of interest. First, regardless of the fact that GDP per capita does not have any effect on the level of support for democracy, it does affect individuals' perceptions of economic performance, since the variable 'economic situation' is one of the most explanatory variable of the model. Second, the analysis demonstrates the importance of the degree of confidence in the Congress at the moment that perceptions of democracy are evaluated. Third, 'political ideology' is the most useful variable in explaining support for democracy, a fact which suggests that the adherents of the right wing do not support the democratic system. This is the most reliable reason for the moderate level of support for democracy in Chile.
    Description: Dieser Beitrag analysiert die Unterstützung der Demokratie in Chile im ökonomischen, institutionellen und politischen Kontext. Hierzu werden Daten des Unternehmens Latinobarómetro aus dem Zeitraum der Jahre 1996-2007 unter Anwendung des 'Ordered Logit'-Modells verwendet, um die Frage nach der Beziehung zwischen wirtschaftlichem Wachstum und Unterstützung der Demokratie zu beantworten. Die Analyse zeigt drei bedeutsame Ergebnisse: 1) Obwohl das nationale Pro-Kopf-BIP keinen Einfluss auf das Niveau der Unterstützung der Demokratie hat, zeigt sich in einer Analyse auf Individualebene gleichwohl, dass die Variable 'ökonomische Situation' eine der aussagekräftigsten ist, um die Einstellung der Individuen zur wirtschaftlichen Leistungsfähigkeit der Demokratie zu erklären. 2) Die Analyse weist nach, wie wichtig das Vertrauen in das Parlament im Moment der Befragung ist. 3) Die Variable 'politische Ideologie' erweist sich als die bedeutsamste in Hinblick auf die Unterstützung der Demokratie, was auf die mangelnde Unterstützung des demokratischen Systems durch die politische Rechte verweist. Dies ist der entscheidende Faktor, der das nur mäßige Niveau der Unterstützung der Demokratie in Chile erklärt.

    Description: This paper examines the representations of violence in Guatemalan and El Salvadoran lite- rature against the backdrop of persistently high levels of violence and crime following the civil wars in both countries. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach settled within cultural studies and uses two examples - De fronteras (2007) by Claudia Hernández and Días amarillos (2009) by Javier Payeras - to analyze the narrative strategies applied in the process of re- counting violence. The results of the literary analysis enable the author to draw conclusions concerning the way in which both societies deal with urban post-war violence. The texts refer to the ubiquity of violence and the hopelessness of the situation, as well as to the responsibil- ity of the mass media for reproducing violence and a general turning away from the public domain towards the private life.
    Description: In diesem Beitrag werden Darstellungen von Gewalt in der Literatur Guatemalas und El Salvadors vor dem Hintergrund der anhaltend hohen Gewaltkriminalität in der Nachkriegszeit untersucht. Dabei wird auf eine kulturwissenschaftliche und interdisziplinäre Herangehensweise zurückgegriffen. Anhand zweier Beispiele - De fronteras (2007) von Claudia Hernández und Días amarillos (2009) von Javier Payeras - wird betrachtet, welche narrativen Strategien beim Erzählen von Gewalt zum Einsatz kommen. Die Rückschlüsse, die diese literarischen Texte hinsichtlich des Umgangs beider Gesellschaften mit der urbanen Nachkriegsgewalt ermöglichen, beziehen sich sowohl auf die Allgegenwart von Gewalt und die Ausweglosigkeit der Situation als auch auf die Verantwortung der Massenmedien sowie die kla- re Abwendung von der staatlichen Ebene und den Rückzug ins Private.

    Description: This article analyzes the 'other' goals that drive Chile and Mexico to achieve intra- and extra-regional FTAs. These countries have a predominantly economic motivation to negotiate FTAs. However, there are other elements that are less apparent, but equally important, in Chile's and Mexico's FTA policies. These accords can also be seen as means to power and as mechanisms for establishing a closer system of global economic governance than that available through multilateral forums. Therefore, these two countries' FTAs are an ad hoc system that represents their respective economic contexts and realities. In other words, FTAs as an essential part of Chile's and Mexico's foreign policies have a strategic political-economic logic that synthesizes the notions of power and institutions. However, these two forces do not exclude of the economic logic for FTAs, which focuses on the maximization of consumers' welfare and producers' gains. On the contrary, they have to be taken as complementary factors.
    Description: In diesem Artikel werden die 'anderen' Ziele analysiert, die Chile und Mexiko dazu bewegen, intra- und extraregionale Freihandelsabkommen anzustreben. In diesen Staaten besteht ein vordringlicher ökonomischer Anreiz, Freihandelsabkommen abzuschließen. Nichtsdestoweniger gibt es weitere weniger offensichtliche, aber für die Gestaltung ihrer Freihandelspolitik gleichfalls bedeutsame Elemente. So können diese Vereinbarungen auch als Mittel zur Macht und als Mechanismen globaler ökonomischer Governance angesehen werden, die über die bereits in multilateralen Foren bestehenden hinausgehen. Die Freihandelsabkommen bilden in diesem Sinne ein Ad-hoc-System, das die jeweiligen ökonomischen und politischen Realitäten der beiden Länder repräsentiert. Das heißt, die Freihandelsabkommen haben als wesentlicher Bestandteil der chilenischen und der mexikanischen Außenpolitik eine strategische politisch-ökonomische Logik, die in der Vorstellung von Macht und Governance-Institutionen aufgeht. Diese beiden Kräfte stehen nicht im Widerspruch zur ökonomischen Logik der Freihandelsabkommen, deren Hauptanliegen die Maximierung des Wohles der Konsumenten und des Nutzens der Produzenten bildet, sondern sollten als komplementäre Faktoren angesehen werden.

    Description: This article aims to evaluate to what extent the Argentine Senate was able to fulfil its constitutional function of controlling the Executive's prerogative to nominate judges between 1983 and 2006, as well as to examine the factors that influenced the exercise of this role. To do so, the paper focuses on the parliamentary procedure of the proposals submitted by the Executive for the nomination of all federal judges, the members of the so-called 'national justice' of Buenos Aires and those of the Public Ministry. The findings show that the Senate's powers depend on several factors, such as, the institutional resources with which presidents count in this chamber (which includes not only the size of the parliamentary majority but also their power in the Committee of Acuerdos), the category of the position to be filled (whether involving Supreme Court justices or not), presidential ambitions in other policy areas (such as re-election), and the rules regulating the selection and confirmation of candidates (such as the secrecy or publicity of the legislative process).
    Description: Der Artikel analysiert, in welchem Maß der argentinischen Senat zwischen 1983 und 2006 in der Lage gewesen ist, seine verfassungsmäßige Funktion als Kontrollorgan bei der Nominierung von Richtern durch die Exekutive auszuüben. Dabei wird auch nach den Faktoren gefragt, die die Ausübung dieser Rolle beeinflussten. Zu diesem Zweck untersucht die Studie die parlamentarischen Verfahren bei den von der Exekutive unterbreiteten Kandidaten für alle Bundesrichter, die Mitglieder der sogenannten 'nationalen Justiz' von Buenos Aires sowie der Staatsanwaltschaft. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die Macht des Senats von einer Reihe von Faktoren abhängt, unter anderem von den institutionellen Ressourcen des Präsidenten in dieser Kammer (was nicht nur die Größe der Parlamentsfraktion umfasst, sondern auch ihre Macht in der Verhandlungskommission), der Art der zu besetzenden Stelle (ob es sich um den Obersten Gerichtshof handelt oder nicht), den Ambitionen des Präsidenten in anderen Politikfeldern (z.B. Wiederwahl) sowie den bestehenden Regeln über Auswahl und Bestätigung von Kandidaten (z.B. ob das Verfahren öffentlich oder nicht-öffentlich erfolgt).

    Description: Much of recent international relations literature argues conflicts to achieve or to frustrate regional dominance will become more virulent in the future. In this context we examine different approaches in international relations theory regarding the role and importance which they attribute to regional powers. We discuss diverse theoretical approaches that address the topics of power relations and power hierarchies in international politics. Marking differences as well as common grounds with the more traditional concept of 'middle powers', we sketch an analytical concept of regional powers adequate for contemporary international relations research. The paper concludes with reflections on the relationship between regional powers and regional integration and a short discussion of the analytical value of the concept of cooperative hegemony for the study of regional powers.

    Description: In all Central American countries we witness a struggle to define, interpret and classify types of violence, delinquency, crime and (in)security. Although this struggle has highly relevant political and social implications, it has not been analyzed systematically. This article evaluates the state of the art and, based on methodological considerations, emphasizes the contribution of qualitative research on the local level in contrast to quantitative studies on the national or regional level. In a second step, using the discourse on Central American youth gangs as an example, the authors show that moral panic and repressive criminal policies are not direct consequences of the violence phenomena per se. Rather, the perception of and the reactions to insecurity and violence are based on social discourses about these phenomena.

    Description: El presente trabajo analiza, desde una perspectiva comparada, las percepciones de las elites parlamentarias de los países miembros del MERCOSUR respecto a las Fuerzas Armadas y a cuestiones de seguridad y defensa. Ante la creciente cooperación en materia de seguridad, se indaga en el plano de los valores y convicciones de las elites políticas para buscar indicios relacionados con el desarrollo de una comunidad regional de seguridad en el sur de América Latina. A partir de los resultados de dos proyectos de investigación empírica sobre los sectores parlamentarios, el artículo identifica semejanzas y discrepancias entre las percepciones de los diputados y senadores de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Paraguay y Uruguay, y discute las posibles consecuencias con miras a una profundización de la cooperación en materia de seguridad.
