CALVENTO, Mariana. Subnational international policy and its measurement: Debates and proposal for its approach in the case of the municipal governments of Argentina. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.54, 00007. ISSN 0188-7653.

This paper analyzes the international relations of subnational actors. First, it focuses on local governments and summarizes the main concepts used for its description. From them, it makes a proposal that fits the reality of the municipal governments of Argentina through the conceptualization of subnational international politics. Second, it establishes a measurement tool to set parameters on the profile and trajectory of the external actions of local governments through the level of international participation. In short, the article represents a breakthrough in providing a comprehensive thematic approach from which to address the international participation of sub-national actors.
