In Latin America and the Caribbean, considerable steps have been taken to strengthen democracy. However, with some of the world’s most blatant levels of inequality present in the region, people’s confidence in the consequences of democracy can be easily shaken.
We focus on electoral integrity and electoral justice, particularly money in politics and the funding of political parties. We also concentrate on constitutional reform processes and the interface between democracy and its capacity to deliver, in terms of citizen security.
Our regional office is in Panama and other country and sub-regional offices are active in Chile, Mexico and Central America, Paraguay and Peru.
