SILI, Marcelo. Styles and logics of territorial action. The recent experience of the municipalities of Paraguay. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2019, vol.53, n.5, pp.917-941.  Epub Nov 11, 2019. ISSN 1982-3134.

Territorial action is a complex process of development in which public, private, and collective actions intervene. As the Latin American experience shows, municipalities are increasingly important actors in building local development. They act in different ways, and this work highlights these differences in style and form of intervention. The study identifies four types or styles of action that synthesize two main elements. First, the forms of organization for obtaining resources. Second, the types of actions prioritized to build development processes and reduce problems of structural poverty.

Keywords : territorial action; municipalities; territorial development; Paraguay.
