Participatory Politics in Venezuela: Local democracy 
and polarization

15.30 - 17.00h

by Gerardo Gonzalez
Universidad Central de Venezuela

Venezuela remains a deeply divided society. Political polarization is present in everyday life of most Venezuelans and the recent presidential elections (April 2013) left an electoral map that is deeply divided between the government and the opposition parties of the “Unidad”. Since 2006 
the government has encouraged the formation’of consejos comunales, neighbourhood-based elected councils that try to implement local development projects with resources from the central government.

14/06/13 Lecture

Gender, Sex, and Politics in (post)Postcolonial Bolivia
Andrew Canessa, Director Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies Editor Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology Department of Sociology University of Essex Colchester 

At 15.30 - 17.00h 

Evo Morales´ administration promises to decolonise Bolivia. One aspect of this decolonisation process is clearly putting power in the hands of indigenous people. In this presentation I argue that decolonisation is a more complex process than the transfer of power or, indeed, of new public rituals such as indigenous wedding ceremonies and indigenous New Year celebrations, to take two examples. I suggest that gender and sexuality are more central in this decolonising process than either the president or commentators might appreciate. Since the arrival of the Spanish the very language of power has been heavily gendered and sexualised where indigenous men have been imagined as sexually as well as politically impotent. I draw on long term ethnographic fieldwork in various sites as well as an analysis of Morales´ gendered exercise of power to ask whether this colonial language of power has genuinely changed or has simply been reimagined to include indigenous men, especially in the person of the president. I argue that an analysis of sex and gender must be at the very centre of an understanding of the exercise power in (post)postcolonial Bolivia.

11/06/13 Participatory Politics in Venezuela: Local democracy and polarization
CEDLA guest lecture by Gerardo Gonzalez
Discussant: prof. Javier Corrales (Amherst College)

Abstract: Venezuela remains a deeply divided society. Political polarization is present in everyday life of most Venezuelans and the recent presidential elections (April 2013) left an electoral map that is deeply divided between the government and the opposition parties of the “Unidad”. Since 2006 the government has encouraged the formation’of consejos comunales, neighbourhood-based elected councils that try to implement local development projects with resources from the central government. While the more than 18,000 consejos comunales have stimulated citizens’ participation for local solutions, research points at a lack of coordination between local authorities and these citizens, as well as political polarization in the consejos. 

In his lecture, Gerardo Gonzalez will start by showing the perceptions of Venezuelans on a number of social, economic and political problems, which indicate and explain the current polarization. The second part of his lecture will focus on the dynamics of the consejos comunales, and their importance for participatory politics and the upcoming municipal elections. 

Gerardo Gonzalez is a Sociologist (Universidad Central de Venezuela) with a Masters in Latin American Studies from CEDLA. His main areas of research are public policies intertwined with civil society, survey studies and political ethnography. His academic activities have included Professor at the School of Sociology and the School of Geography at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, Postgraduate Professor at the Universidad Católica Andres Bello and Postgraduate Professor of Public Policy Analysis at IESA and Monteávila University. He currently works at Consultores21, a think thank for social and electoral analysis in Caracas.
