Trabajo de Investigación: Are Formal NGO/CSO Missing the Tide of Change Mobilizations in Latin America?
1. Objective of the study: The objectives of this paper is to explore recent events in several countries in Latin America and to analyze if formal non-profit organizations have been supporting mobilizations claiming for human rights and better economic conditions or have been completely passive to these events and not supporting them at all.
2. The research question: Different indicators and testimonies show that mobilizations claiming for change and better human right and economic conditions for citizens have been mainly supported by informal networks, young and marginal groups and not more stabilized and well-known formal nonprofit organizations. ¿Have formal NGO/CSO that normally claim for better citizens conditions recently looked aside to these mobilizations and are now part of the established status-quo?
