Yoletty Bracho is a PhD candidate in Political Sciences at the Université Lumière Lyon 2. Her work focusses on the relationships between popular organizations and public administrations when working together towards the implementation of public policy. More accurately, she concentrates on actors who come from a militant background and work inside the public administrations of the chavista era. For these intermediaries, “working for the State” is a sacrifice they do to support the revolution, thus giving a strong political meaning to public administration. These interactions inform us about the regular yet tense relationship between politics and policy, as a main characteristic of the modern State.
