en: This article presents the ethnographic experience and methodological problems that the author faced as un special rapporteur for the human rights of indigenous peoples. The objec - tive of this mandate was to study the human rights violations of these peoples through field visits in various countries, select interviews with government officials and experts, the use of docu - ments, all of which had to be summarized and presented before the various specialized bodies of the United Nations with recommendations to governments and other actors.>>>

en: This paper presents a reflection on the power of ethnography in social research, empha - sizing the recently recognized utility for sociological research through focused ethnography. To do so, it is emphasized the epistemological and methodological application of ethnography in studies developed in Political Sociology to analyze governmental and public decision scenarios and pro - cesses, where the actors involved has different power resources. Ethnographic findings on two sce - narios provide clues to re-conceptualize what is called in political theory “governance”. The intention is to show ethnography as an innovative method to capture the detail “microscopic” of the reality studied, combining emic and etic perspectives that offers significant potential to reduce the gap be - tween concept and “reality”, and thus contribute to the confirmation and refutation of theories.>>>

en: The author explores y argues how ethnographic methodology –principally participant observation– produces invaluable data for the construction of concepts. She uses as an illustra - tion the case of a debate concerning the separation or not into two different concepts of “political clientelism” and “vote-buying”, taken from a study realized in a native village in Mexico, Distrito Federal. The principal research question of the article is the methodology she used to gather the ethnographic data. She details on one hand which data had enabled her to demonstrate the dif - ference between the two practices, and therefore two concepts, and on the other, which fieldwork practices she carried out to obtain those data. The author argues that the concepts we build should not disregard the notions of the people we study, since otherwise our research cannot help us understand the actions of those we study.>>>
en: This article is an attempt at contributing to debates which have begun about the study of the State and its political processes, with the objective of establishing a methodological proposal to make more in-depth descriptions of the political practices of the actors in their interaction with government structures and parties. It ponders rethinking research strategies of contemporary political processes in order to delineate with greater precision the spheres of condensation of po - litical relations in which fieldwork takes place. The text highlights the potential of quantitative techniques for delineating some points of view for ethnographic observation which have allowed me to carry out more in-depth studies of the contemporary political processes in Mexico City.>>>

en: A description of theoretical-methodological strategies which have been used to carry out the ethnographic study of electoral processes as expressions of political-territorial dynamics ex - pressed in Mexico City is presented. The article examines how clientelistic networks have been organized and their relation to the representatives of party factions, especially of the PR d . It shows how the results of elections can be explained, especially in areas of the greatest poverty, based on negotiations entered into by the leaders of urban organizations with intermediaries associated with the predominant political party ( PR d ) up to the year 2015 in the capital of the country.>>>

en: Drawing on the ethnography of development programs and the analysis of public policy, the paper delves into some relatively unexplored aspects of policy formation: namely, the evolu - tion of certain key concepts and their social work in a continuous process of persuasion and dis - cussion. The resulting policy texts encode the negotiations and social relations that produced them while seeking to limit future contests over meaning and call forth consensus on the feasibil - ity of public action. The author draws on both written sources and an analysis of his experience as an anthropologist-consultant on the Oportunidades program’s impact assessments to illustrate the interests, arguments and divergent points of view that produce policy documents.>>>

en: The present article ponders the lack of attention anthropologists have paid to unpleas - ant matters. Existing explanations of this lacuna, it argues, are valid but insufficient. Based on ethnographic fieldwork with young neo-Nazis in Berlin, suggests the evasion of difficult issues in anthropology is the result of three interrelated forces: in the first place, the ethnic and academic norms which have dominated the discipline; second, its location in the economy of production of academic knowledge, to a great extent external to anthropology; and finally, contradictions and impasses in the field of ethnography.>>>
en: Anthropology is one of the few disciplines, if not the only one, based on a utopian ideal of inter-subjectivity, always in search of horizontal relationships between researcher and local peo - ple. Here I reflect, through my own ethnographic experiences, on the challenges represented by these demands, given the contexts of actual, manifold inequality everywhere. I have found that inequality among local languages and linguistic groups relate to inequality among types of music and music performers. I then show how in the city of Merida, Yucatan, linguistic and musical in - equality also relate to inequalities in musicians’ access to digital and other resources, even if the municipal and state governments have launched a program of digital well-being expected to bring access to the digital world to all sectors of the regional population.>>>
