Event Details

Dr Lorena Vasquez (Universidad de Alcalá, Spain) - Citizen participation, understood as the direct influence of citizens upon the decision-making process, may take place via mechanisms of voluntary institutionalized participation. The use of such mechanisms has been increasing since the 1980s and is widely implemented by local governments in different cities of the world with the aim of strengthening local democracy, among other goals. This seminar will outline the results of recent research in Bogotá and Madrid and identifies critical social and political variables that help shape citizen participation with different outcomes.

Dr. Lorena Vasquez holds an MSc in Public Administration from University of Alcalá (Spain); an MSc in Political Science from Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain); and a PhD in Latin American Studies from the University of Alcalá. She is a Junior Research Fellow at the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of Alcalá.
