Resumen

PADILLA CALDERON, Esther. La construcción social de la escasez de agua: Una perspectiva teórica anclada en la construcción territorial. Región y sociedad [online]. 2012, vol.24, pp. 91-116. ISSN 1870-3925.

From the perspective of this work, the main concept necessary to understand water scarcity and regional construction processes is a specific type of social relationship: confrontation. According to Max Weber, confrontation occurs when the actions of an individual or a group are guided by the purpose of imposing their will against the resistance of another or others. In this article, the core of the notion of social relationship is confrontation, and from this theoretical-methodological proposal arises the fundamental issue in understanding the process of the social construction of a territory and the scarcity of water. The analytical axes are: the relationship between territorial construction and confrontation, and between confrontation and scarcity.

Palabras llave : power; confrontation; social construction; territory; territoriality; scarcity.
