Defying Expectations. Associational Participation and Democratization in Poor Communities in Argentina Defying Expectations. Associational Participation and Democratization in Poor Communities in Argentina Alexis de Tocqueville noted that the key to democracy is “knowledge of how to combine.” This book focuses on the following question: can participation in associations facilitate democracy within the communities in which they exist even if such associations are not democratic –- i.e., vertical, hierarchical organizations. To consider this question, this book explores a poor community’s transition from a sparse to a highly developed associational space, and examines the impact of this process of democratization on social relations (between leaders, participants, and non-participants). Specifically, it compares three different associational settings in a barrio in Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina -- i.e., a non-governmental organization, a religious network, and a political party network. It analyzes the interplays between inclusion and exclusion; solidarity and generalized distrust; and inequality and protagonism. Ultimately, this book demonstrates how the configuration of social relations serves to legitimate and reproduce civic life in poor communities. Книга по Требованию 978-3-6391-8836-3
