Espacio Público is an independent think tank that seeks to contribute to the building of a more just, transparent and democratic society, which allows economic, social and political development that benefits all people.
To this objective, we contribute through the collaborative generation of ideas and proposals, offering spaces for reflection and dialogue that allow us to take our societies to development, in an inclusive way and aware of our environment. We work with high methodological standards, making rigorous use of the evidence.
We aspire to resolve some of the great challenges faced by emerging countries like Chile, to advance in the construction of a new consensus about the development model, the role of the State, economic growth and its relationship with the environment, social justice and respect of diversity.
We offer an independent and transparent meeting place to summon the different actors to dialogue, promoting a quality debate that allows generating agreements that are projected over time, promoting changes in our societies and better opportunities for all. In Espacio Público we value pluralism and the effort of deliberation in order to achieve agreements assuming our differences.
Through advocacy, we seek to directly influence authorities and decision makers, to set the direction and priorities of the public agenda. Similarly, we hope to make a contribution in the involvement of citizens in the debate on public policies, through information and dissemination of ideas, allowing all people to participate and build a common vision of democratic, inclusive and sustainable development.
