ALVAREZ ORTEGA, Emilio; SAEZ ARDURA, Felipe  y  ULLOA MARTINEZ, Jorge. Family Public Policy Networks: A Bourdieu-informed analytical proposal. Cult.-hombre-soc. [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.1, pp.128-153. ISSN 0716-1557.

The comparison between the traditional analysis of public policy networks (PPN) and elements of the theoretical-methodological framework that Pierre Bourdieu developed for the study of social fields, allows the formulation of a proposal for analysis that complements approaches usually used to study networks. The proposal for analysis is based on a case study of the work undertaken by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Women, Work and Motherhood, created by Chilean president Sebastián Piñera in 2010.

While PPN traditional analysis emphasizes the interaction generated between different actors (agreements, cooperation, solidarity) and resources circulating between them (knowledge, information, money), Bourdieu’s theoretical proposal focuses its analysis on the permanent, invisible and underlying structures of these networks. In order for this structure to emerge, the study of the distribution of the different forms of capital of the agents involved in a network and who configure a field that is reproduced or restructured by social practices generated by the habitus becomes necessary.

By using the theoretical notions of field, agent, capital and habitus as well as the Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA), in order to lay bare underlying social structures, this article seeks to contribute to a greater and better understanding of public policy networks as a new form of coordination between the state and civil society and overcome deficiencies in the traditional analysis of PPN.
