AUGUSTO MELENDEZ, María Claudia; DARGENT BOCANEGRA, Eduardo  and  ROUSSEAU, Stéphanie. Beyond State Capacity: Civil Society and Policy Implementation at the Subnational Level in Cusco and San Martín (Peru). [online]. 2017, n.90, pp.95-125. ISSN 0121-5612.

In this article we present two cases that highlight how regional civil society contributes to improving the implementation of regulations and public policies in subnational spaces. In the regions of San Martín and Cusco in Peru, civil society actors took advantage of decentralized space to effectively enforce national laws (environmental regulations in the first case, and rights for the population that speaks indigenous languages in the second). These cases help to explain the heterogeneity encountered in implementating regulations in subnational spaces, a common phenomenon in Latin America.
