Participatory Democracy in Latin America: Institutions and Democratic Quality

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Almost every country in Latin America has experience with participatory institutions, e.g. institutions established to engage new actors in policy decisions in a sustained and ongoing way. Nine countries, including Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile, have mandated participatory institutions in all subnational governments. How effective have these efforts been? Are new actors participating in these innovative venues or are they susceptible to elite capture? Have they reduced corruption and promoted transparency as reformers’ hoped? Based on the author’s fieldwork in three countries (Guatemala, Peru, and Bolivia), this paper will present the findings from a cross-national study that explores the effects of participatory reforms on indicators of democracy and governance.
