Abstract

This research note pays attention to the main indicators that the literature has proposed to measure the quality of local citizen participatory experiences. Next, a number of variables are suggested to measure this phenomenon and analyze their relationship with some features of the municipalities where they were developed. Last, a multivariate model is presented in order to estimate these participatory quality indicators on the basis of contextual variables. The analysis relies on a survey conducted during the fall of 2009 that was administered to 120 technicians from as many Andalusian municipalities. The survey gathers information on the existence and characteristics of this type of participatory processes since 2003. The study concludes that contextual factors are influential to a certain extent, and even critically important for some dimensions of quality, as deliberation.
