Revocación de mandato: ¿democracia o demagogia?

KASBLog: análisis y opinión

El debate en torno al experimento del primer referéndum de revocación de mandato en México, ensombrecido por el ineludible ardor de la disputa política, las múltiples violaciones al orden constitucional de funcionarios y actores políticos y la anunciada iniciativa gubernamental de reformas electorales (con el eminente peligro de resucitar elementos autoritarios y antidemocráticos desconocidos para toda una generación de mexicanos) desgraciadamente ha ignorado la delicada cuestión de la conveniencia y la justificación política de la figura revocatoria como mecanismo de democracia directa. Contrariada por la coyuntura política del momento, la discusión ha dejado a un lado el fondo del asunto, empobreciendo la confrontación de ideas.

Transitions and Transformations

Perspectives on the Future of Work in Asia

The publication examines how technology, digitalization, and other relevant forces shape the future of work in Asia. The first section provides an anticipatory look at how life and work is restructured by wide-ranging technological changes. The second section focuses on how our educational systems can be reconfigured to keep up and take advantage of these changes. Lastly, the third section evaluates how similar technologies have different impacts on different sectors of the economy. The papers analyse and look at these issues from different perspectives. Some focus on the regional level, others present country analyses, while a few present micro case studies. We hope that this publication contributes to concrete policy action from both governments and businesses in supporting and preparing human capacities today for our work in the future.
