    BACKGROUND

    On February 16, 2011, Law No. 20,500 on Associations and Citizen Participation in Public Management was published, which amended Law No. 18,575, Constitutional Organic Law on General Bases of the State Administration, incorporating a title IV on Citizen Participation, which establishes and recognizes the right of people to participate in the policies, plans, programs and actions of the State. Then the Presidential Instruction No. 007 for Citizen Participation, issued on August 6, 2014, understands citizen participation as a cooperation process, through which the State and citizens jointly identify and deliberate on public problems and their solutions, with methodologies and tools that promote the creation of spaces for collective reflection and dialogue, aimed at the active incorporation of citizens in the design and development of public policies.

    For this reason, the Council of Rectors of Chilean Universities, in its capacity as coordinating body of the university work of the Nation, incorporates citizen participation in its public management based on the following foundations:

    - Participation as a Right: The participation of individuals and civil society organizations in the life cycle of public policies is a right that the State must guarantee and promote.

    - Citizen Right to Public Information: Public policies must be known by society, especially by those who are their recipients, both in access to the offer of institutional services and guarantees of social protection, as well as in the control and transparency of the public function.

    - Strengthening of Civil Society: Sectorial public policies must include concrete initiatives to strengthen civil society organizations that correspond to their programmatic scope, taking into account criteria of equity and decentralization.

    -The inclution: The participatory quality of public policies is committed to a society free from arbitrary discrimination, which requires measures aimed at a rights-based approach for citizen inclusion.

    RULES OF CITIZEN PARTICIPATION

    MODALITIES OF CITIZEN PARTICIPATION

    On February 16, 2011, Law No. 20,500 on Associations and Citizen Participation in Public Management was published, which amended Law No. 18,575, Constitutional Organic Law on General Bases of the State Administration, incorporating a title IV on Citizen Participation, which establishes and recognizes the right of people to participate in the policies, plans, programs and actions of the State. Then the Presidential Instruction No. 007 for Citizen Participation, issued on August 6, 2014, understands citizen participation as a cooperation process, through which the State and citizens jointly identify and deliberate on public problems and their solutions, with methodologies and tools that promote the creation of spaces for collective reflection and dialogue, aimed at the active incorporation of citizens in the design and development of public policies.

    The mechanisms of Citizen Participation constitute processes of social co-responsibility between citizens and the organs of the State. Their purpose is to strengthen and improve public management, in this case contributing to the more efficient functioning of the Council of Rectors in compliance with its policies, plans, programs and actions.

    The following are mechanisms for Citizen Participation of the Council of Rectors:

    a) Access to Relevant Public Information: This information regarding what to do with the Council of Rectors is available on the website www.consejoderectores.cl; social networks like Facebook and Canal Youtube

    b) Citizen Consultations: They are held annually, through which citizens are asked to pronounce on specific issues of special interest to the Council of Rectors. Citizens can access the Citizen Consultation subjects through the institutional website www.consejoderectores.cl and answer a survey designed for this purpose, the results of which will be reported in the same way.

    c) Civil Society Council: This Council will be of a consultative and autonomous nature, its objective will be to monitor the decision-making processes of the Council of Rectors in all aspects related to its policies, plans, programs and actions. It will be composed in a diverse, representative and pluralistic way by members of non-profit associations related to higher education in the country. Its composition, as well as its operation and powers will be previously established by means of an administrative act by the Council of Rectors. Currently this Council is under development.

    d) Participatory Public Accounts: These accounts are carried out annually with the aim of informing citizens about the management carried out and collecting opinions, comments, concerns and suggestions about it, promoting citizen control and social co-responsibility. Their results are duly published on the CRUCH institutional website.
