A proposal from the government of the province of Santa Fe, Argentina, to reform the constitution through a participatory process.
Problems and Purpose
Bases for the reform: A constitution for Santa Fe is a participatory proposal from the government of the province of Santa Fe to reform the provincial constitution, with which they seek to reverse the process starting from the citizens' proposals and not from the political agreements as it’s usually done. Using a digital platform and citizen consultations, the process was intended to open the debate on the future of the province of Santa Fe, providing spaces for citizens to actively participate in the process of constitutional reform.
