Abstract

VELA MURILLO, Norma Patricia. VANISHING LINES AND RESISTANCE SCENARIOS: CONFIGURATION OF ALTERNATIVE BETS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COLOMBIAN CENTRAL-WESTERN REGION. Hacia promoc. Salud [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.1, pp.175-185. ISSN 0121-7577.

Objective: the purpose of this research was to reflect on how to set up some alternatives for the development the central-western Colombian region during the period 2007-2009. The discussion of this article focuses on two emerging categories in the research process: collective construction as a vanishing line and recreation of the local as a resistance scenario. These categories are the result of practices and the community leaders' unveiled discourse about the configuration of alternative bets for development. Methodology: the development of the research was carried out using the method of grounded theory and, with it, the emergent design to process and analyze the information obtained. Techniques for collecting information were open interviews, focal group, non-participant observation and document review. The target population was made up of the community leaders belonging to base organizations. Results: the results are presented conceptually from a critical view point to notion and development, and methodologically the results are presented as determinant elements to advance in the construction of professional intervention methodologies in Social Work, especially in the area of environment and development. Conclusions: the empowerment of base communities implies their mobilization with the objective of generating a breaking off from the system. In this sense, the alternative bets for development are profiled as vanishing lines and resistance scenarios before the established neoliberal paradigm.
