Resumen

VOMMARO, Gabriel  y  QUIROS, Julieta. "You Came by your Own Decision": Rethinking Clientelism through an Ethnographic Clue. Desacatos [online]. 2011, n.36, pp. 65-84. ISSN 1405-9274.

By comparing two relational sets of popular neighborhoods placed in two Argentine provinces -Buenos Aires and Santiago del Estero- we explore, from an ethnographic point of view, some dimensions of people's political experiences. We centre our analysis on a debate that has recently occupied social sciences: the association between popular politics and the circulation of social assistance policies. This association often invokes "clientelism" as an explanatory category. Based on the analysis of our field observations, we discuss a set of assumptions contained in that category from which social scientists assume specific politics in contexts of poverty.

Palabras llave : popular politics; clientelism; social policies; ethnographic critic; Argentina.
