Resumen

MUNCK, GERARDO L. Rethinking the Democracy Question: The Andean Region in the New Century. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.1, pp.149-161. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2010000100008.

This article addresses the old question, what is democracy? In light of developments in Latin American thought, and analyzes political trends in the Andean region during recent years from the perspective of democracy. It argues that electoral democracy is seen as an indispensable minimum of democracy. However, emphasis is also placed on three additional requisites that have been proposed as necessary conditions for an electoral democracy to become a full democracy: a democratic form of governing, a democratic form of changing the constitution, and a state with the power to protect civil and social rights. The forging of consensus about this more complete vision of democracy is an important challenge of Latin American thought on democracy.

Palabras clave : Democracy; electoral democracy; constitutionalism; state; Andean region; Latin America.
