Development has long been considered as a lineal path to be followed in order to attain progress; the foundations from which it emanates are well embedded in western standards.

En las últimas décadas la concepción de desarrollo ha entrado una fase de de-construcción tras recibir un sin número de críticas, así permitiendo nuevos discursos ganar espacio y proponer alternativas. El "Buen Vivir" aparece como una alternativa en Ecuador, negando al desarrollo como visión inequívoca para los países a seguir y propone la importancia de imperativos sociales y ecológicos. La pregunta permanece en sí este nuevo discurso puede ser viable como alternativa al desarrollo. Este trabajo contextualiza al "Buen Vivir" como un movimiento contra-hegemónico bajo la teoría de Robert Cox y utiliza el caso Ecuatoriano como plataforma de análisis para el ámbito local y a priori como posibilidad de alternativa al desarrollo en el plano internacional. 2015-12-29T12:19:57Z 2015-12-29T12:19:57Z 2015 bachelorThesis Tesis (Licenciado en Relaciones Internacionales), Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Colegio de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades; Quito, Ecuador, 2015. http://repositorio.usfq.edu.ec/handle/23000/4265 en openAccess http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ec/ 59 h. application/pdf Quito, 2015.

The Buen Vivir as a counter-hegemonic movement under Robert Cox’s hegemonic theory
description Development has long been considered as a lineal path to be followed in order to attain progress; the foundations from which it emanates are well embedded in western standards. For the last decade the conception of development has entered a phase of deconstruction after several criticisms, thus allowing new emergent discourses to gain space in different ways to attain welfare and growth. The “buen vivir” appears as an alternative in Ecuador, which it denies development as an irrevocable action that states pursue and portrays the importance of social and ecological imperatives, but the question is can it really replace mainstream development theories. This work will contextualize the "buen vivir" as a counter-hegemonic movement under Robert Cox's hegemonic theory and use the Ecuadorian case to analyze its possibilities to work locally and further on have a place in the international arena.
