Constitutional reform in Peru: How and what to modify? Proposals for the debate
In 2000, at the end of Fujimori‘s autocratic regime, there was a debate in Peru for constitutional reform. Although institutionalized spaces were constituted, the constituent moment did not arise for a total reform of the Constitution. Political crisis has been constant during the last few years. Now, there is a campaign for ballotage, and the worst moment of the pandemic. Is this the new constituent moment? There is a debate about whether or not the Constitution can be totally reformed. One of the candidates, Pedro Castillo, proposes a reform through a Constituent Assembly – while the other, Keiko Fujimori, emphasizes on the benefits of the current Constitution. The procedure is in debate. Analyzing the Latin American region and our context, we would bring our views on the matter, within the constitutional framework. The panel would also promote a debate about which topics to modify. It would focus on: (1) Government and Congress, (2) Economic regime, and (3) Fundamental rights.
