Multi-actor dialogues for better public policies: lessons from Latin America

During the past twenty years, multi-actor dialogues have played an important part in the consolidation of democratic processes in Latin America and in increasing the participation of organised sectors of civil society in defining and overseeing public policies. To explore how these dialogues have worked in Latin America, this Brief focuses on three emblematic multi-actor dialogues from Argentina, Peru and Mexico, that are representative of the variety of political systems present in the region. It highlights the methodological and contextual factors that influenced their success and identifies best practices that have the potential to be replicated in other regions of the world.
