STRASSER, Carlos. Algunas precisiones (y perspectivas) sobre equidad, democracia y gobernabilidad a principios del siglo XXI. Postdata [online]. 2004, n.10, pp.131-148. ISSN 1851-9601.

This article explores the tensions among the concepts of democracy and/or equity, on the one hand, and governability, on the other. In present societies, in which political government has become more difficult, governability has gone away from democracy and the rule of law due to their difficulties to develop completely. Consequently, the international credit agencies' presion concentrates exclusively on governability. Likewise, and somewhat pessimistically, it argues that inequalities continue to be the principal enemies of democracy and will continue to impede its development.

Keywords : Democracy; Equity; Governability; Rule of law; Republicanism.
