IUCCI, Matías José. La definición local de la problemática social: La conformación de la agenda de gobierno en un municipio de la Provincia de Buenos Aires. Doc. aportes adm. pública gest. estatal [online]. 2009, n.12, pp. 73-97. ISSN 1851-3727.
The target of this work is surveying the making of a social policy agenda at municipality level. The case taken here is the inclusion of a municipal plan for the strengthening of social problems in a municipality of the province of Buenos Aires. The case offers us the opportunity for investigating on two central problems referred to the agenda of government: the first one, on the conditions under which changes are established in the local agenda by relation to the previous ones. The second question linked to the first one, recounts to the way in which the municipal agents identify social problems and propose strategies of intervention on the same ones. One of the conclusions more importantly of this paper is that the definition of public problems from a local perspective presents a dynamics in which the agents who intervene in the field of the policy and administration in the municipal level raise topics and problems that can be approached across limits and financings that come from the national and / or provincial areas of management.
