Las Políticas Públicas como Creación y Fortalecimiento de Capacidades. Métodos para un Análisis Interpretativo de las Políticas Públicas

Díaz Ruiz, Álvaro. 2017. Las Políticas Públicas como Creación y Fortalecimiento de Capacidades. Métodos para un Análisis Interpretativo de las Políticas Públicas. Beau Bassin: Editorial Académica Española.

The book develops a method of interpretive analysis of the content of the design of public policy, based on evaluative criteria of Amartya Sen’s Capabilities Approach. For this, public policies are considered as proactive actions that seek to achieve an objective, and as social constructions with meanings that can be interpreted from different theoretical positions, in this case, from the CA. The methodology aims to answer the question about what the opportunities that public policies open for people are and how they are characterized. Using 9 Chilean public policies that address different aspects of disability, analytical matrices are built inductively based on the argumentative structure with which public policies promote the creation and / or enhancement of functionings and capabilities in people. On this argumentative pattern, policies are characterized by various analysis of intentions with respect to the CA analytical categories.
