The Constitution for Everyone is the name of an independent citizens’ initiative in Chile that was publicly launched today with the aim of educating and promoting broad dialogue about the Constitution.
Through a digital platform (www.laconstituciondetodos.cl), participants will be able to find and learn about the current constitution, express their approval or rejection of the articles, make comments and propose and compare alternative wordings.
In December there will be a collaboratively made report that will present the different options presented in the platform and also an analysis of the articles with greater approval, rejection, or those generating controversy. This document will reflect what Chile thinks about its Constitution and the proposals for modifying it.
The driving force behind this project are citizens coming together from a range of social and political sectors, with an interest in bringing the constitutional dialogue closer to the majority of the Chilean population. The project also counts on the technical support of GovRight, an institution that successfully managed similar experiences in Morocco, Libya and Egypt recently.
