GURZA LAVALLE, Adrián; DE MELO ROMAO, Wagner  e  ZAREMBERG, Gisela. Political Parties and Democratic Innovation: Beyond Purities and Perversions. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2014, vol.59, n.220, pp.21-54. ISSN 0185-1918.

This article aims to review the conceptual import of the term "political mediation", to shed light on the analytical reach of indirect politics, whose scope of possibilities has been usually thought of as confined within the opposites of political representation and clientelism. An analytical exercise is put forth as a possible and tentative means not only to establish a vocabulary which may be more sensitive towards present time demands, but also to -in Bunge's words- initially allow for the reinterpretation of older symbols of our political vocabulary. Towards this goal, besides a linguistic and conceptual itinerary of the term "mediation", each of the three analytical dimensions of indirect politics is developed, favoring dialogue with theories of representation, which channels into an analytical model we call the "cube of indirect politics". Te article ends with a brief case-classification exercise aimed at showing the displacement produced by the model in the understanding of given experiences in indirect politics.

Palavras-chave : political mediation; representation; clientelism; indirect politics; democratic innovation.
