In this issue of saha we focus on the theme of political participation. We question the methods and conditions under which citizens can exist in the political arena and their ability to intervene effectively in the decisions shaping their lives. To do this adequately, it is undoubtedly necessary to approach politics and the political field beyond the confines of its usual boundaries. In other words, it is essential to look one step ahead of politics, understood in a narrow sense, and identify the connections or disconnections between different forms of political activity and institutional politics. Taking up this perspective, in this issue we consider a broader political field that also includes nongovernmental organizations and social movements.
