National Shared Agenda

The National Shared Agenda was based on an intersectorial dialogue in which 20 political parties participated, as well as representatives of civil society, academics and members of the private sector. The objective of this deliberative space was to strengthen the governability of the country, the democratic dialogue and the political party system, through the delimitation of convergent objectives. For this, more than forty meetings were held, in which common problems were identified that went beyond the ideological framework of the parties. This consensus resulted in a series of agreements summarized in the Agenda and the commitment to continue to promote consensus-building and party pluralism through the Political Parties Forum.

Institutional design

?

Formalization: is the innovation embedded in the constitution or legislation, in an administrative act, or not formalized at all?

Frequency: how often does the innovation take place: only once, sporadically, or is it permanent or regular?

Mode of Selection of Participants: is the innovation open to all participants, access is restricted to some kind of condition, or both methods apply?

Type of participants: those who participate are individual citizens, civil society organizations, private stakeholders or a combination of those?

Decisiveness: does the innovation takes binding, non-binding or no decision at all?

Co-governance: is there involvement of the government in the process or not?
