Process of Concertation for the Proposed Draft Law on the Autonomy of the Pacific North Central Nicaraguan Indigenous Peoples

The Process of Concertation for the Proposed Draft Law on the Autonomy of the Pacific North Central Nicaraguan Indigenous Peoples was the result of a participatory process promoted by the Network of Indigenous Peoples, an organization that represents the 22 communities of the country. The conciliation process was carried out with the objective of restoring the collective rights of collective ownership to the original peoples, in addition to adapting the international treaties to the Nicaraguan context, defining public policies that have the participation of these minorities, alliances between state and indigenous authorities.

Institutional design

?

Formalization: is the innovation embedded in the constitution or legislation, in an administrative act, or not formalized at all?

Frequency: how often does the innovation take place: only once, sporadically, or is it permanent or regular?

Mode of Selection of Participants: is the innovation open to all participants, access is restricted to some kind of condition, or both methods apply?

Type of participants: those who participate are individual citizens, civil society organizations, private stakeholders or a combination of those?

Decisiveness: does the innovation takes binding, non-binding or no decision at all?

Co-governance: is there involvement of the government in the process or not?
