PERALTA BELTRAN, José Orlando. Santa Cruz: the New Epicenter of Bolivian Politics 2001-2020, but not of Political Power. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2022, vol.26, n.48, pp.69-94.  Epub June 01, 2022. ISSN 2077-3323.

In Santa Cruz, the citizen political interactions have been demanding from the State the recognition of their regional identity, respect for the rule of law (21f ), departmental autonomy, and electoral transparency through a social practice (discourse) which is liberal (free market) and republican (participation). However, the discourse has not materialized into national political discourse. Te objective is to distinguish the ideological contents in relation to the predominant national-popular discourse. It is concluded that the political actors from Santa Cruz have not translated their regional political interactions into social practice and a political party project that has national scope in the 21st Century.

Keywords : State; region; politics; discourse; ideology.
