Public Accountability

With the implementation of the 1991 Constitution, Colombia overcame its status as a representative democracy and instead became a participatory democracy. In that sense, participation has become a public policy instrument for achieving the harmonious development of society as a whole. In fact, the Constitution itself, in its article 74, states that each of the actions of the state must be documented in such a way that every citizen can gain access to pertinent information.

The following documents include the list of proceedings or minutes for recent Public Accountability Hearings:
