Democratic Governability in the Andean Region : Political and Institutional Reforms and Social Movements

Over the past 15 years, the Andean countries - Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela - have undertake a number of unsustainable political and institutional reforms that have caused dissatisfaction, exacerbated social and political unrest, and in some cases led to violent confrontation. New political and institutional reforms are expected over the next few years, and social movements will play a role in them.

This project aims to provide both political and social actors with general information and in-depth analyses that will allow them to consider their options and come to a decision in an informed way. It will also establish and strengthen a network of researchers engaged in comparative study on issues related to democratic governance in the Andean region.
