Latin America is at a crossroads in 2015. While democracy today predominates as a form of government, it is still consolidating its roots in a process that is far from being irreversible.

The Alerta Democratica scenarios offer a journey through four possible futures for democracy in Latin America 2015-2030.

These scenarios were created by a diverse group of 37 Latin American leaders including academics, policy-makers, public servants, youth, social movements, business, media, indigenous populations, religious institutions, and foundations, who share an intention to stimulate strategic reflection and action on democracy in the region.

Why ALerta Democrática?

Alerta Democratica means “Democratic Alert”. Even though democracy has been chosen as the dominant form of government in our region, there is a need to be alert to the quality of that democracy.

The scenarios draw attention to the risks and opportunities of the present that can make a difference for a high-intensity democracy in the future. This is why the Scenario Team chose the name “Alerta Democrática” to provoke reflection and dialogue around democracy in our societies. Alerta Democrática is not just a name, it is the collective cause of the diverse team of leaders that came together to construct these scenarios with the hope of contributing to the development of higher quality democracies in Latin America.
