GUARDAMAGNA, María Melina. A State policy to the public function?: Strengths and weaknesses in the training of political cadres in democracy. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19. ISSN 1514-6871.

In the context of Argentina and Latin America, the training of state officials and political cadres necessary to legitimize and carry out a political project is a permanent issue on the agenda, which has historically attempted to be implemented as a "state policy-oriented public sector management and led by the State" (National School of Government, 1998), demonstrating its importance as a social issue that problematized over time has tried to be resolved by the State along with other civil society actors. In this sense, is a recurring demand from the leaders who go through continuous processes of change and have the need to incorporate specific knowledge that qualify their relationship with the citizens, encouraging democratic quality of political practices. In short, this is an issue that recurrently emerge as an indispensable element to come out of the crisis being experienced by the argentine State and, therefore, is a central component of its reform.
