MERINO, Mauricio. Seizing of Public Positions. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2013, vol.58, n.219, pp.135-156. ISSN 0185-1918.

Corruption is a cause of governmental inefficiency and people's disenchantment with democracy, but it is also a result of seizing systems that have prevailed in the country in spite of everything. In the first part of this paper two approaches used to address corruption are identified and analyzed: the individualist and the bureaucratic approaches. Both of them mistakenly view corruption as a cause, as a problem among individuals that contradict social values or break rules pursuing self-benefit, and not as the result of a whole system that seizes public positions, assumptions and budgets. In the second part the paper examines the Mexican Career Civil Service -as one of the numerous institutions built in Mexico during the first decade of the 21st century-, its dimension -as an answer to public positions seizure-, scope, obstacles and challenges.

Palabras llave : Career Civil Service; seizing systems; corruption.
