Lozano, Jeanette (2014). Las Iniciativas Ciudadanas de Reforma Constitucional en Perú: mecanismo ineficaz para la solución de los problemas de representación. c2d Working Papers Series 45, Centre for Democracy Studies Aarau (ZDA) at the University of Zurich.

Abstract

During the Peruvian legislatures in the period 2001-2011 five citizens' initiatives were presented to Parliament trying to reform the Constitution. They got archived without leading to any debate in the plenary of the Parliament. Which were the formal or procedural problems leading to this phenomenon? This is the question this paper is addressing. Each step of all five initiatives for constitutional reform in Peru were traced. The rebuttal of these propositions demonstrates the weak relations and low negotiation capacity the civil society sector has inside the legislative branch. The paper also demonstrates the lack of follow up and interest for such issues by Peruvian members of parliament who would have to reform the state and its public policies.
