Participatory democracy is one of the most outstanding Law areas nowadays. Its compared study has a special relevance for the better understanding of the institutions that has in each country. This paper analyses on that way the regulation, main jurisprudence and essential practice of the participatory democracy both in Colombia and Spain from the approval of their Constitutions of 1991 and 1978. The objective is to determinate the points in common, as well as the differences between both countries and to expose the reasons. It is concluded that, if Colombian regulation is notably richer than the Spanish one, however, the practice in both countries is equally limited, being the reasons similar in some cases (exigent regulation) and different in others (socio-politic situation).
