From Protest to Proposal The Contentious Politics of the Nicaraguan Anti-Water Privatisation Social Movement



From Protest to Proposal The Contentious Politics of the Nicaraguan Anti-Water Privatisation Social Movement



Bulletin of Latin American Research 31(4): 0



The Bolivian water wars' of 2 cast the international spotlight on civil society interventions aimed at reversing neoliberal economic agendas. However, few studies have examined the ways in which activists move from protest to proactive policy formation in these cases of contentious politics'. Drawing on extensive field research, I argue that the Nicaraguan anti-water privatisation social movement has expanded the contours of Nicaraguan democracy in two ways: (a) through improving the inclusiveness and accountability of existing representative institutions of government, including policy-making processes, and (b) through creating extra-institutional democratic spaces and practices.
