OVANDO SANTANA, Cristian and ALVAREZ FUENTES, Gonzalo. La dimensión fronteriza de la política exterior de Chile: inmovilidad y emergencia de nuevas dinámicas. Estud. front [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.24, pp.75-102. ISSN 0187-6961.
The following article draws the priorities of border public policy that define the Chilean foreign policy. Through a theoretical framework from the rational-reflective approach of International Relations, we argue that despite of the increasing openness, internationalization of the country, and the emergence of new actors and subnational initiatives; the views and options between the actors of this new area and the definitions of foreign policy not always match. We propose the need to establish mechanisms that settle the positions among regional social-political actors, intermediate agencies and the central level.
