Dialogues of Public Policies for the inclusion of the Afro-Uruguayan Population

Dialogues of Public Policies for the inclusion of the Afro-Uruguayan Population was jointly created by the Afro-Uruguayan Culture House and the Afro-Descendants Institute for Research and Development and was funded by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID). The main idea was to promote dialogue between government authorities, academia, the business sector and civil society on policies aimed at the Afro-Uruguayan population, in order to generate clear proposals on public policies and tools to follow up the proposals. The methodology should include a first phase of preparation for the analysis of documents on the current situation, followed by preparatory meetings with the different sectors and finally a space for dialogue with the participation of the Uruguayan International Cooperation Agency (AUCI), the central government, Civil society and international experts, with the aim of working in a participatory way in the development of policy proposals.
