DEMO.RESET 2.0

LOS OBSTÁCULOS Y DESAFÍOS DE LA DEMOCRACIA DELIBERATIVA.

En un mundo donde la democracia es constantemente cuestionada e incrementa la desconfianza en las formas institucionales y tradicionales de gobierno, se abre una oportunidad desde la sociedad civil para profundizar la exploración y reencontrarse con las prácticas deliberativas del sur global. Es momento de reconocer las formas singulares de conversación, argumentación y toma de decisiones que han diseñado las comunidades en los distintos contextos, como espacios donde se alimenta la gobernanza global y local.

En Demo.Reset 2.0 a través de los agentes de cambio (Demoreseters) vamos a seguir las historias de múltiples organizaciones, alianzas y prácticas deliberativas que comparten retos y soluciones comunes, buscando estrategias de acción colectivas, deconstruyendo y resignificando, para lograr superar las barreras para la deliberación en nuestros territorios.

¿Quiénes son DemoReseters?:
Agentes de cambio

En el viaje de las comunidades, los agentes de cambio, a quienes llamaremos DemoReseters, son quienes comparten el espíritu creativo para transformar y/o nutrir modelos de gobernanza local/global y cuentan con múltiples poderes para llevar a cabo sus procesos de deliberación.

¿El porqué es necesario?

Las condiciones de la ciudadanía global han cambiado rápidamente y las tradicionales aproximaciones a la deliberación y la participación democrática requieren transformaciones que reconozcan las prácticas diferenciales construidas desde la ciudadanía y desde el sur global.

Es el momento de ampliar los diálogos desde el Sur y nutrir las tradicionales formas de la deliberación con modificaciones y adaptaciones que provienen de comunidades y procesos inesperados y singulares. De esta manera contribuirán a una ciudadanía permanente donde la memoria y la narrativa fortalecerán la gobernanza ampliada y diversa.

Las prácticas diferenciales de deliberación

Demo.Reset 2.0 les permite reconocer sus fortalezas y facilitar intercambios para aprender entre sí de sus desafíos comunes Algunas organizaciones son expertas en involucrar a comunidades locales, mientras que otras son fuertes en diseñar metodologías para la deliberación. Al tejer y fortalecer los puentes de esta comunidad de práctica, Demo.Reset 2.0 se convierte en una brújula que direcciona a nuevos encuentros y aventuras en el viaje de la deliberación en el Sur global.

¿Qué es una práctica diferencial?

Una diferencial deliberación práctica es una metodología, proceso, espacio, y/o herramienta para la conversación, que reúne las visiones, opiniones o pensamientos propias y/o singulares de grupos de personas diversas para considerar atenta y detenidamente el pro y él contra de una decisión antes de adoptarla. En ocasiones, esta práctica puede llegar a consensos y/o influenciar autoridades locales sobre algún tema de interés común.

DELIBERATION

Deliberation is understood as a conversation among diverse actors and with diverse opinions in which space, time, methodologies and procedures are available so that the actors involved can carefully consider the pros and cons of a decision before adopting it, seek the best ways to express their opinions and/or influence the decisions of local authorities on a topic of common interest.

DIFFERENTIAL

  • The differential of the practices is related in the first place to the specific community origin of those who develop them: Indigenous peoples, LGTBIQ+ Communities, collectives or other forms of association and collaboration between young people, women and social movements.
  • The differential of the practices is related in second place; with the singular forms, procedures, aesthetics and rituals, which have been developed by the communities to carry out conversations, processes of informed decision making and actions of influence on local authorities. In this context, the differential is centered on recognizing and mapping the aspects of each practice: How does the word circulate, what procedures are used to better “understand” the problems among all those involved, what role do bodies, images, symbols, other aesthetics play, how is the memory of what is said constructed, how are spaces distributed so that the conversation is conducive, how is time managed for the conversation, are decisions made, how is the conversation carried out, and how is it carried out?

PRACTICE

It is that methodology, process, space and/or tool developed and implemented by communities and civil society organizations with the intention of convening spaces for conversation and decision making on issues of common interest; among community members and/or with local authorities in which it is intended to achieve some kind of collective influence.
