The “Public Forums for National Peace and Reconciliation” are dialogues implemented by the recently elected President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, before formally taking office. The initiative's aim is to facilitate citizens, in particular, those belonging to minority and historically marginalized groups, to share their views and ideas regarding different topics such as insecurity and organized-crime.
This innovation aimed to organize 18 regional forums, however, only 13 were implemented. Through these forums, citizens' opinions were collected through different means, including dialogue tables, consultations and electronic forms of participation. As a result of these dialogues, a document with the most important deliberations was issued, aiming to include the concerns of the population in the new federal administration's agenda.
