"Gender and the State Reform in Latin American and the Caribbean"


The peer-reviewed journal Política y Gestión, hosted by the Escuela de Política y Gobierno at the Universidad Nacional de San Martín (Buenos Aires, Argentina), is organizing a thematic issue on gender and the state reform in Latin America and the Caribbean.  This issue seeks to provide a forum for studies that deal with the relationships between the first and second generation of state reforms and cultural, economic, and social situations of women.  Papers on gender differences in the civil service, cultural stereotypes of bureaucracy, and women as clients of changing organizational services and structures are welcome.  We also strongly encourage discussions into new terrains such as the relations between gender and the privatization of public utilities and women's collective action and incidence on public policies concerning the transformation of the state.


Papers can be submitted in Spanish, English, or Portuguese.  If accepted, the author will have to provide a Spanish version of the article.  The review panel is composed of international scholars from institutions in Latin America, Europe, and the US.  The deadline for submission is August 2005.  The expected publication date is March 2006.  All papers should be sent electronically to:  revistapoliticaygestion at unsam.edu.ar, Attn. Ana L. Rodríguez-Gustá, Guest Editor.  For further information about style and guidelines contact:  revistapoliticaygestion at unsam.edu.ar.
