Desafíos de la movilización social para generar transformaciones en las instituciones: la movilización fallida en Egipto periodo 2010-2013
Frausin Uribe, Stefania
The scope of this paper is to evaluate the limitations and extensions that a social mobilization has to reach for the transformation of traditional institutions, proven by the study of the Egypt social movement within the period of 2010 and 2013. It is analyzed and explained how the slow-moving institutions, such as the power and mental structures, have frustrated the historical movement known as the Arab Spring in Egypt. Following the perspectives of the institutions developed by Gérard Roland and Alejandro Portes, it is concluded in this investigation that de slow-moving institutions take into account structural aspects of society such as power and culture. Therefore, they cannot be easily changed since they have been founded by historical processes grounded in ideologies and moral values.
