    Regional integration is not only about trade agreements and economic cooperation, but also about the social and political processes that member states aim to integrate into a single common dynamic. The success of regional integration thus depends on public engagement in an open and informed debate that examines and fully exploits the opportunities offered by the changes arising from integration and globalization. Moreover, this open and inclusive approach, to which this book aims to contribute, is a guarantee of the democratic and consensual nature of the process. This book is the result of collaboration between the University of Cape Verde (Uni-CV) and the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM). It presents original research articles that represent a collective, systematic and comprehensive effort aimed at an innovative analysis of regional integration, while seeking to understand in depth its challenges and the solution to its problems.

    1/1/2015

    Participatory democracy innovations aimed at bringing citizens back into local governance processes are now at the core of the international democratic development agenda. Municipalities around the world have adopted local participatory mechanisms of various types in the last two decades, including participatory budgeting, the flagship Brazilian program, and participatory planning, as it is the case in several Mexican municipalities.
