OLMEDA, Juan C.  y  ARMESTO, Alejandra. Recentralization and State Governors: Why Are They Not Always Opposed? Analyzing the case of Mexico. Foro int [online]. 2017, vol.57, n.1, pp.109-148. ISSN 0185-013X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24201/fi.v57i1.2360.

Studies on the recent wave of recentralization have focused on understanding when national authorities push for such reforms and on identifying the diversity of factors that contribute to their success. Most studies assume that regional or local politicians will oppose recentralization. This paper argues that the position of subnational politicians will depend on how recentralization affects their interests: while they will oppose fiscal and political recentralization, they may find incentives to support administrative recentralization. Within this framework, the position of Mexican state governors is analyzed with regard to the administrative and political recentralization experienced in the country during the administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Palabras llave : recentralization; territorial interests; governors; Mexico; educational and political reforms.
