I was very much involved in promoting civil society participation at the Miami Summit.
Later on I led an intense process to achieve the same goal at the Santa Cruz Summit, with a great political support from the Bolivian Government.
The Santiago Summit lost a lot of this dynamic.
Since then we all - Governments, Inter-governmental organizations and Civil Society - preach the need to seriously institutionalize civil society participation in these important events.
What is being done to ensure that the Canada Summit and OAS as a whole involve and incorporate in its agenda and results the contributions of civil society groups?
