Paraguay, May 29, 6 participants, Organizer: Semillas para la Democracia (Seeds for Democracy)
The focus group was very productive because all participants have experience and knowledge in the subjects addressed in the survey. As an example, Romy Fischer, who is a lawyer, gave a lot of important information about Paraguay’s local governance legislation. Also, Marta Ferrara, as Semilla’s Executive Director, helped provide a lot of information gained through her vast experience in citizen participation, open government, women’s empowerment and democracy projects.
