RIVAS, Cristina; VICENTE, Purificación  e  SANCHEZ, Francisco. Education as an Element of Quality of Latin American Politicians. Polít. gob [online]. 2010, vol.17, n.2, pp. 279-319. ISSN 1665-2037.

In this work we assume the level of education as an indicator of political elite's quality. Our hypothesis is that legislators' education level in some of the Latin American countries has not a positive impact on the characteristics of democracy. Instead, under social and economic inequalities, a high level of education shows individual or collective privileges and, therefore, it does not have an effect on the general condition of social and political system.

Palavras-chave : parliamentary elite; education; the quality of politicians; democracy; social inequality.
