dc.description.abstractIn 1997, the community of GuayakiCua, Paraguay underwent a dramatic political and social transformation allowing campesinos to take a more active role in decisionmaking processes. This change established safety and security for local residents, and brought about the involvement of the Paraguayan government, nongovernmental organizations and residents to begin development work in the form of infrastructure projects. The end of the Stroessner dictatorship in 1989 signaled the end of autocratic rule and ushered in the neoliberal perspective advocating private property, free trade, and other measures to bring about the democratization of Latin America economies to foster growth and participation. In the late 1990’s after a series of economic crashes in Brazil and Argentina the neoliberal model of development lost support from local communities. Rural communities such as GuayakiCua began confronting the established U.S. supported Colorado party system that changed its tactics after the dictatorship and favored neoliberal development. GuayakiCua is a community in transition where campesinos are making efforts to take part in a true grassroots democratic process, which v favors just development while dealing with Colorado rule and neoliberal promotion as campesinos make strides towards increasing participation through grassroots methods.en_US
