MORENO, Itatí del Rosario. Shaping Public Policies. Grassroots Organizations’ Strategies to Incidence on Public Policy. A Cases Study in Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Estud. Polit. [online]. 2019, n.56, pp.67-90. ISSN 0121-5167.

Several actors tend to influence public policies. Among these groups, we can find grassroots organizations. Many of these organizations, despite not having great resources, successfully achieve their political aims and influence public policies, leaving their mark on the configuration of State priorities and policies. In this context, it is relevant to ask not only what action strategies do grassroots organizations use to influence public policies, but also how strategies favor this incidence. The results of the case studies and the implementation of the comparative method show that the combined use of mediation and, confrontation strategies, as well as the expansion of deliberative spaces, over time, further the incidence of grassroots organizations into the making of public policies, since they allow different ways of accessing to the decision making sphere.
