Resumen

SCHNEIDER, Cecilia  y  WELP, Yanina. Institutional Designs and Power (Im)Balances: Institutions of Citizen's Participation inDispute. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2015, vol.60, n.224, pp.15-43. ISSN 0185-1918.

The present article presents a typology if institutions of citizen's participation (IPC) -deliberative, semi-representative and direct- which provides a platform to analyze the achievements and limitations of a selection of ICP in the capitals of six countries in South America -Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Lima, Montevideo and Quito-. It aims to observe whether their specific characteristics in terms of autonomy in activating, incidence on decisions made, and scope regarding the issues submitted or admitted for public participation are conditioned by variables of the political context both in the introduction of participatory institutions and in their practices. Specifically, it ponders which variables explain the characteristics of the ICP in terms of the citizen's power to intervene in the definition of public affairs.

Palabras llave : participatory democracy; direct democracy; neighborhood councils; community councils; citizen assemblies; participatory budgeting; removal from positions.
