Inequality, Distributive Justice and Political Participation: An Analysis of the Case of Chile
Autores/Authors: Juan Carlos Castillo, Diego Palacios, Alfredo Joignant, Maximiliano Tham
Political participation has frequently been associated with individual resources; that is, individuals with higher incomes, higher educational levels and more time tend to participate in the political process to a greater extent than other individuals do. The present study suggests that in addition to resources, an individual’s beliefs about economic distribution are an important determinant of participation both in elections and in protests. Based on the analysis of the Chilean data from the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP) 2012, the results suggest that distributive beliefs are associated primarily with participation in protests.
