The impact of citizen participation on governance in Europe and Latin America

7 September, 2021

We are at a time in which Latin America and Europe are experiencing a severe crisis of legitimacy and the loss of prestige of both their political parties and democratic institutions. The polarisation of public opinion and social discontent has been exacerbated by the COVID crisis, which has exposed existing inequalities. For this reason, in this podcast the FIIAPP-promoted EUROsociAL+ Governance Area discusses citizen participation and governance, with the journalist Laura Cárdenas interviewing Sonia González, head of the programme's Governance Area and Oliver Escobar, professor of Political Science at the University of Edinburgh.
