Resumen

SOSA IGLESIAS, JOSÉ EUGENIO. Honduras: Between Crime, Media Engagement, Social Protest and Disputed Election Results. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.1, pp.203-219. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2014000100010.

There were four key issues in Honduras’s political conjuncture. First, the persistent violence and criminality that made of Honduras the most violent country in the world. Second, the clash between government and media on the issue of legislative reforms in the telecommunications sector. Third, the increase in social protest, especially of teachers, indigenous groups, and Afro-Honduran peasants, as a reaction to the deepening of neoliberal reforms. And fourth, the general elections, whose disputed results allowed the ruling party to continue in government. However, the elections results show that Honduras is undergoing a profound process of reconfiguration of the political party system.

Palabras clave : security; militarization; reforms; protests and criminalization.
