Civic participation is not limited to casting electoral vote or engaging in non-governmental organizations. Nowadays democracy is about protesting, acting and speaking out one’s opinions directly, without any representatives. Whether on the streets, on the internet or in the social media people are trying to express their needs to change the way democracy works right now.

During our seminar informal civic movements from Latin America will be presented and discussed. We will also discuss the challenges faced by the movements and try to answer what is their future. Presentations by Chilean experts will be a starting point for further debates on similarities and differences between American and European social activism.
