Resumen

ALCANTARA SAEZ, Manuel. Political career and political capital. Convergencia [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.73, pp.187-204. ISSN 1405-1435.

This is a theoretical proposal for the study of political careers from the perspective of three different moments (entrance, development and exit) according to the use of political capital made by politicians. Different patterns of political capital as well as their impact on political trajectories are studied; the weight of time and economic resources (political income) are also considered. A politician is somebody elected trough an electoral process and/or nominated by someone elected; it is also the case of any organic member of an institution, e.g., a political party. Regardless of the case, this individual must receive a salary for such activity.

Palabras llave : political careers; political capital; elites; professionalization of politicians.
