Ariel Fontecoba Civil society in contemporary Argentina: Introduction A lot has been written lately about the civil society —its organizations, its ways of demonstrations and democratic participation; and the links between civil society, the State, and the market.
The democratic opening in was the driving force of new hopes and frustrations for intellectuals, politicians, artists, militants, and citizenship. It was believed that democracy, alone, could solve many of the social, political, and economic problems that affected the country.
These expectations were lowered in the end; and, in some cases, they even changed into apathy or widespread disappointment. Nevertheless, many people think that we have not reached the limits of this debate yet; or that these limits may change and enable alternatives that have not been subject of discussion yet.
Within the framework of the updated studies on the civil society and its organizations, in this work we will start with a brief history outline of civil society in Argentina. We have treated to systematize its main stages, in order to indicate the characteristics of the civil society in the last decades.
With this brief history outline as context, we will give an account of the efforts made in an attempt to conceptualize the main associative forms of the Neoliberalismo y sociedad civil desafios para society, so that we can highlight their more outstanding characteristics and attributes.
As it is further mentioned, it is very important to analyze the civil society in interaction with other institutional spheres, particularly the State, to understand how the civil society works and affects the different political processes --particularly those related to the implementation of public policies and its direct entailment with wider social processes.
In this sense, the new social policies constitute a link to approach this subject.
In no other case has there been as much emphasis on the importance of participation, the expression and even the management of civil society organizations as in the one of the social policies fomented and implemented recently in Argentina.
This insight will enable us to discover some of the most relevant axes of the present forms of entailment between the State and civil society. In the case of Argentina, the implementation of these policies has developed in parallel with a process of pauperization regarding the conditions of social reproduction of vast social sectors.
This conjunction between the new social matter, and decentralized and focused social policies was not far from the emergency and consolidation of new actors from the civil society, which struggled to obtain resources that allowed them to guarantee their subsistence.
This movement, in its different spheres, knew how to become a beneficiary, contributor to and manager of the new social policies implemented by the Argentine government. Nevertheless, its incidence goes beyond this role, becoming —for many— the vehicle of a new debate about the limits of the Argentine democracy: It is at this point that we question ourselves, towards the end of this article, about the alternative possibilities to think of the limits of the participation and incidence of civil society organizations in the decision-making political processes.
We will mention some of the main contemporary proposals, leaving open the question about a new scenario that enables the construction of a new democratic institutionality. For some authors, the existence of civil society organizations CSOs is a phenomenon that has long existed in Argentina.
Since colonial times and independence period, there has been institutions of public good that acted in different areas social, cultural, and politicalbut mainly in the welfare area.
Several stages can be distinguished in the timeline of the civil society in Argentina: On the contrary, he argues that, in comparison to other Latin American cases, its development was rather delayed. This one has an ambiguous connection with the State, since its character -supposedly private- granted independence as well as some discretion concerning both its performance and its handling of public and private funds.
The FEP implemented two forms of action regarding social assistance: It was during the dictatorship initiated in that many of the present associations of human rights defense, whose members were directly affected The Mothers, Grandmothers and relatives of missing people or those who collaborated in tasks of complaint and research arouse.
These associations created new spaces for the accomplishment of the politics-related issues. These organizations constitute a heterogeneous set that mostly includes private foundations, development and promotion organizations formed by grass roots and communitarian organizations, as well as groups of professionals.
The last ones are the most numerous, and represent the determination of those socially excluded to overcome the poverty situation in which they are immersed with the aid of their organization Forni, Since the crisis of the year and the consequent social emergency, numerous social organizations emerge and consolidate its main role as performers of the local social policies.
This situation is mainly related to the great economic transformations. Despite these discussions about the development of the civil society organizations, there is a consensus on the fact that it was in the last decade of the 20th Century that this set of organizations obtained social visibility as a sector.
When the State replaced itself, syndicalism was progressively weakened and the typical mechanisms of a market society were accented, the margins of visibility of the third sector were clarified. But, how such a wide and diverse universe could be classified? The notion of third sector is related to a relational definition where the State and the market are the two first sectors.
This third sector would originate from the faults developed by these two sectors when allocating goods and services Laville, In Argentina, the third sector receives different definitions: Something similar happens on a worldwide level: We take into account a number of characteristics to define the organizations that constitute this sector, following some criteria established by Salamon and Anheinerin Campetella, G.
Bombal and Roitter, It assumes the presence of certain degree of formality and permanence in time, though it is not essential that the organizations count on legal function and status.
