 abstract = {"This article discusses the process of construction of “critical citizenship”
in the state of Michoacán, Mexico, since 2002. After the anthropologist
Lázaro Cárdenas Batel, the candidate of the PRD (Party of the Democratic
Revolution), took office as state governor in that same year, a process designed
to favor, stimulate and empower the citizens in the exercise of their
right to participate in the government’s co-management was started. On
the basis of the political platform of his electoral campaign, his government
plan and mainly the explicit political will to govern “from, for and
with the citizens,” actions designed to materialize this motto were developed.
The article describes the foundations of this process, the methodological
proposals, the design of the “workshops for self-diagnosis and
working out of proposals” (TADEPs), their implementation, the required
instruments and the results that have been obtained. It presents other consultation
mechanisms that have been applied and their results. It also describes
the “follow-up mechanisms” that were implemented to apply what
was researched and in this way to strengthen the real processes of citizen
participation." (author's abstract)},
