The Chilean plebiscite of October 25, 2020 marked the beginning of the constitutional itinerary for the elaboration of a new Constitution in Chile. This unprecedented process enables that a Constitution will be deliberated in democracy, in a parity way, with indigenous peoples, and a mixture of political parties and independents. This presentation will analyze how the development of the constitutional agreements and their democratic legitimacy can be encompassed by Inter-American standards and, on the other hand, how the transformative changes of the constitution can reinforce the ius constitutionale commune. It is argued that a transformative potential lies in the dimensions of integrity, parity, transparency, and civic participation.
