Legislating culture: the pathways and defeats of the "Law of Cultures" projects in Argentina and Bolivia

|Sumario:||Between 2014 and 2015 in Argentina and from 2012 to 2016 in Bolivia, two draft bills of law "of Cultures" (Ley Federal de Culturas in the first case, Ley Marco de Culturas in the second case) were developed in parallel. Both processes have been the result of the articulation of diverse agents from the cultural field in connection with actors from the political field and the corresponding governments: the brand new Ministry of Culture in Argentina (created in 2014) and the Ministry of Cultures and Tourism in Bolivia (created in 2009). The first process took place in the last year of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's administration, while the second took place between the second and third terms of Evo Morales Ayma. None of the projects resulted in the enactment of a law. We propose to analyze, within the framework of a comparative study, both processes: we will try to identify the characteristics of the agents and forces mobilized, both in the political and cultural fields, the institutional and regulatory frameworks, the logics of (i)legitimization and the sectorial or political motivations that have intervened in shaping the conditions of possibility, or rather the impossibility of the emergence of such laws.|
