Abstract

Though often elegantly theorized as the product of discrete factors, governance is often a complex practice that involves politics and power. This paper investigates the politics and power of local governance in Guatemala. I make use of three different lenses for viewing the dynamics will I explore: citizenship, community, and power. Each of these frames provides critical insights into the intentions and understandings that underpinned the institutionalization of a participatory governance regime. Decisions about how to understand citizenship, community, and power have shaped the practice of participatory governance in Guatemala and have broader implications for democracy in the country.
