Other Writings

Below, a compendium of work from other venues:

“Lima’s participatory budgeting initiative boosts civic optimism and youth participation.” Open Budgets Blog, November 8, 2013.

“Democracy, participation, and discontent: a crisis of governance for Peru?” Suffragio, August 13, 2013.

“Participatory Budgeting Advances in Lima, But Stalls Elsewhere in Peru.” Americas Quarterly Blog, July 8, 2013.

“Lima Mayor’s Office Uses Innovative Technology to Expand Participatory Budgeting.” Open Budgets Blog, June 20, 2013.

“Clientelism, Contention, Coercion, and Concealment: Notes toward a theory of informal and clandestine governmentality in Latin America.” I wrote this review essay in the spring of 2011; it was accepted for publication at the (now-defunct) Hemispheric Review, and should have appeared in the autumn of that year. As that publication sank with nary a trace, however, the essay lives here now. This is an issue, or set of interrelated issues, in which I still take a deep interest, so this is an appropriate place for the piece.
