La agenda de derechos en Uruguay. Del movimiento social a las políticas públicas en el gobierno de José Mujica

Abstract : The Rights Agenda in Uruguay. From Street to Congress under Mujica’s Presidency
During the José Mujica administration were approved in Uruguay three of the most emblematic laws extending social rights in the recent history of Latin America : the decriminalization of abortion, the adoption of gay marriage and the legalization of cannabis. Despite the popular progressive image of the president, this article argues that such laws are the result of social demands towards the leftist government inaction. Arranged in a common agenda of rights, the formulation and policymaking processes of these demands were conveyed in the Congress interdependently, translating both a strength and a weakness in the manufacturing procedure of the resulting public policies.
