Political Dialogue in Peru

Political Dialogue

During the political crisis in Peru after the coup d'état on 7 December 2022, the lack of inclusive mechanisms for dialogue between political and social actors to address the interests of citizens became evident. One of the most serious results of this situation has been the violent protests that have claimed dozens of lives.

The centralization of information and the management of the political crisis have generated a distortion between how political reality is perceived in the capital and the rest of the country. This situation is further aggravated by the demands for access to public services and justice that have not yet been addressed by the government.

With the aim of peacefully and inclusively addressing the political crisis, spaces for dialogue will be established that involve representatives of political and social actors from at least 16 regions of the country, thus ensuring broad citizen participation.

In addition, in collaboration with national and regional media, content will be developed that promotes dialogue and social inclusion, highlighting the citizen interests of the entire country.

Along with the spaces for dialogue, a communication campaign will be carried out that will seek to promote democratic values, especially dialogue and diversity, as fundamental axes to overcome the political crisis and strengthen democracy in Peru.
