Participatory democracy

Partido Integración Nacional is a democratic party, committed with Costa Rican people’s will. Our party’s ideology is based on Participatory Democracy, a modern vision of democracy, in accordance with the times we are living. Participatory Democracy is defined as a “political model which eases the citizens’ capability to associate and organize themselves, so that they can have a direct influence in public decisions. Nowadays, it is manifest usually through a variety of mechanisms, such as participatory budgeting, neighborhood councils or referendums” (Nieto, 2012:100)

PIN believes the citizens must have a more active and direct participation in decision-making.
