Advocacy Campaigns

Over the years, we have developed and joined various campaigns in Argentina with the goal of achieving greater transparency, access to information, and the strengthening of our democratic institutions.

  • #AccesoALaInfo: Promotion of a national law on access to public information (2016). Together with other NGOs, we proposed the Legislators several reforms and amendments to the bill sent to Congress by the President of the Nation, mainly regarding the independence of the Agency of Access to Information. We participated in a public hearing in the Chamber of Deputies, and published a press release with more than 100 endorsements of individuals and organizations. It was successful in achieving the sought reform.
  • Transparency Agenda: 12 proposals for substantive reforms to the system of transparency in our country. (2016). Together with other 3 NGOS (ACIJ, ADC and Poder Ciudadano), we developed a website with 12 proposals for a reform in the democratic system, which we consider urgent for the new administration. It was published in December 2015, and presented personally to the Chief of Cabinet of the new administration, as well as to several public officers.
  • Judicial reform: Our justice must be reformed. NOT like this. (2013). The Executive Branch sent several bills to reform the Judicial System. However, we consider that the proposed reform deepens the Justice problems; it has not been debated accordingly, it has several constitutional risks, and it threatens the judicial independence and damages the most disadvantages groups.
