Participación Ciudadana: Significados y Sentidos Atribuidos por Actores Sociales a Partir de la Gestión Pública de Dos Agentes Educativos Municipales
Citizen Participation: Meanings and Senses Attributed by Social Actors since the Public Management of Two Municipal Educational Agents
The research objective was characterizing the citizen participation and uncovering its meaning and sense attributed for social actors, through the management practices developed by two institutional agents that, in a latent way, make up an educational commonwealth. The scenes of research were one City Council and two schools, all three situated in the same local space. Methodologically, we used empirical-hermeneutics strategies of Grounded Theory, carrying out continuous and comparative analysis of information from participating observations and in-depth interviews with key informants. The findings reveal that both institutions are scenes of simulated participation which replicate the traditional political culture.
