Spanish term or phrase:cadenas sabatinas
En una de sus cadenas sabatinas el presidente XXXX se refirió a la rehabilitación del ferrocarril en XXXX [país]como un paso importante en la consolidación de los constructos identitarios que debe forjar una nación, habló en aquella ocasión “de lo que en sociología se llama ilusión movilizadora”
Thanks in advance if anyone can shed light on this.
Henry, I entirely get your point about the context helping, but on this occasion I wanted to make sure those responding genuinely recognised the term and didn't just give random guesses (which I could do myself) from the context given. Add to that the comment I make in the discussion entry for the other related term/question posted re confidentiality. Hope that helps to clarify...
