Research starts from the premise deliberation allows us to moderate the power of the government, and correct some of the situations of democratic disorders, through a dialogical control that requires accountability, transparency and publicity about decisions that affect the lives of citizens, as well as effective participation in the elaboration of public policies, as an expression of self-government.
