La sociedad civil, el bienestar social y las transformaciones del Estado en Costa Rica
[Civil society, welfare and transformations in the Costa Rican State]


Author Info

  • Reuben Soto, Sergio


Several theoretical and methodological perspectives have been used to understand the trans-formations occurred during the last 20 years in the Costa Rican State. This work aims to de-fine a coherent approach of such transformations in order to understand them and be able to offer possible solutions to the social problems therefore originated. With that purpose, we formulate, in the first part, a theoretic-methodological proposal that will allow us to place those transformations and their associated social events in a consistent interpretative frame. In the second part, we order the main transformations and events accordingly to such frame. And in the third part, we suggest a general proposal to reorient those transformations in order to make them consistent with what appears to be the fate of our epoch.
