The Right to Political Participation in Colombia: A Critical Look at Mechanisms for Citizen Participation

Project: Research project

Project Details


How has the right to political participation evolved in Colombia since the adoption of the 1991 Constitution? How have mechanisms for citizen participation been used, regulated and interpreted by the country's political and legal institutions? Have they contributed to the consolidation of a democratic political culture or, on the contrary, have they proved insufficient to guarantee citizens the possibility of directly exercising sovereignty? These are the questions that this research project seeks to answer.
