The research analyzed the implementation of active public employment policies for the urban sector in Argentina and Bolivia between 2006 and 2015, to review their possibilities of overflows or expansions to the rural sector.

To do this, a theoretical update was made on the State issue, reviewing the views and debates that existed and that were recreated, considering it as a historical construction and from a porous or moving configuration; the different conceptions of public policies were also visited, assuming the one that posits them as social relations in dispute, and highlighting their possibilities of overflows and extensions, such as modes of appropriation or democratization; Finally, perspectives on rural territorial development in both countries were reviewed, considering valid those that promoted an active role of the State in the development programs.

In addition, regulations and reports made from the intervening public bodies were read; and, finally, key actors were interviewed, both among the state agents involved and in academic spaces.

The voice of these actors was fundamental to propose an inquiry that was guided in finding aspects and conditions that made possible overflows and extensions from different ways of inhabiting the State and the subjectivities of the estate agents that were produced and recreated in the period.

The conception of the porous state proposed for the historical stage allowed incorporating a look at the dialogue between state agents and social movements to the dynamics of implementation of public policies. In the overflows of public policies, the role of social movements that were key actors, also in the formation of porous states during the so-called post-neoliberalism, was fundamental. States that, in the same sense, made possible ways of inhabiting it in its porosities with practices and thoughts that bet on the social transformation. It was in the management mode that allowed the form of historical conformation of the porous State where the explanation of the overflows was found and not so much the design of public policy.

The comparison of Argentina with Bolivia made it possible to think from two countries that, despite sharing a common period horizon with regard to the intervention of the National States in rural development, presented differences that are invitations to continue deepening and continue to follow a path of shared learning.
