MARTINEZ-HERNANDEZ, Aldo Adrián  and  OLUCHA SANCHEZ, Francisco. Latin American intra-party democracy. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.51, pp.7-36. ISSN 0188-7653.

Research proposes to determine the level of internal democracy of political parties in Latin America from perception of its members, allowing the creation of an index that has parameters for the measurement and comparison of the parties according to its democratic features. At the same time, research supports designing a profile of the parties by subjecting to analysis the relationship between ideology and internal democracy, stressing that despite the differences between left and right, parties in Latin America do not have dichotomous democratic features, while maintaining low levels despite their ideological location.

Keywords : Intra-party democracy; political parties; leadership; centralization; pluralism; permeability; Latin America.
