This paper presents results of my PhD thesis "Youth and Political Share: the youth situation in the contemporary Peronism" (Institute of Development Economical and Social (IDES), National University General Sarmiento (UNGS) in Argentina) on youth share in Peronist political organizations in the city of La Plata, Capital of the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the second term of government of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner (from 2011 to 2015). It presents some new elements to think the articulation of notions about the state and the state bureaucracy and its relationship to the everyday practice of youth’s political activism, putting the focus on the subject and different political practices that circulate around the state as articulating element of politics. The interest is not accidental, since the last period of Peronist management (from 2003 to 2015) of the Argentine government has promoted a revitalizing his national state as an axis of social transformation, as opposed to the adverse effects to Argentina who have had prescriptions international financial institutions in the orthodox neoliberals policies from nineties and early two thousand. This paper is divided into two stages: in the first, some representations that themselves young activists have of what the state itself is, and which should be its functions in relation to the world of politics, we'll call "1. The state as a tool, as a solution and as an object of care "; and in the second section, analysis of the practices of young activists it appears in state management through the interpretations of themselves young activists, who call them "2. Politic activism from the state and activism to the state, "Politic activism from the state ".
