International focus: Governance in Latin America

Claire Launay, August 2016

Centre National de la Fonction Publique Territoriale (CNFPT)

This session provides feedback on governance from Claire Launay-Gama, Research director - OPALC-Sciences Po (Political observatory for Latin America and the Caribbean) / Transparencia por Colombia).

Claire Launay-Gama addresses the usage of governance in Latin America. She discusses the idea of governance and its meaning, using as a point of departure its introduction in Latin America in the 1970’s. She then shares with us her analysis of the evaluation of State action and the political dimension of governance (changes in local public institutions and participation of non-government actors). Latin America is now considered a laboratory for citizen participation. Two case studies (Colombia and Chile) illustrate our speaker’s remarks.
