Mobilization: An International Quarterly 1 October ; 9 3 : — This research demonstrates how individual and group behavior is shaped by the opportunities and constraints created by strong and weak social network ties. The political behavior of two factions in Solidaridad, a squatter settlement outside Oaxaca, Mexico, diverged dramatically after the victory of the PAN in local elections. Some residents, usually newer arrivals who had not participated in the founding of the neighborhood, defected from the PRI and its neighborhood organization to establish an independent organization of their own. Once they did so, they became more active in community affairs, attending regular assemblies, participating in community improvement projects, volunteering to petition local and state governments for services, and voting—usually for a party other than the PRI. Residents who remained loyal to the PRI formed their own clique and isolated themselves from the new organization, refusing to attend assemblies and participate in the weekly community activities, and generally limiting their political activity to voting for the PRI in local and national elections.

The first attempt to introduce fair, competitive elections occurred under the leadership of Miguel de la Madrid in , but he reversed direction when he was opposed by leading politicians from his own party. His successor, Carlos Salinas — , chose to pursue economic liberalization, opening up Mexico to greater competition globally, and negotiating an agreement with Canada and the United States North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA , while maintaining an authoritarian presidency. During this era, proactive actors that fomented significant political change came from numerous sources. If one examines the most notable transitions from one-party rule since the s, the broadest and most significant feature, and a major component of the theoretical discussion of such transitions, is whether or not a democratic political transition takes place before or after an economic transition from a statist, capitalist, or socialist economy to one dominated by the private sector.
