Abstract [en]

This study is an analysis of the processes of neoconstitutionalism and participatory democracy in Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela. Since 2006, these three countries have led the alleged leftist transformation of Latin America and the 21st Century Socialism. This article shows how the ideas ofradical democracy laid down in the new Andean constitutions are reflected and the likely challenges,tensions and contradictions regarding the implementation of these measures to enhance local popular participation and social inclusion of previously marginalized groups. Additionally, this article aims is to apply a relatively novel concept for the academic debate on political development in Latin America: socialist decentralization. Therefore, the study will offer a problematization of the theoretical debateon decentralization and radical participatory democracyin the three Andean countries. Furthermore, certain challenges for the participatory political projects by Presidents Hugo Chávez, Evo Morales and Rafael Correa will be identified.
