DossierChile’s Fight for a New Constitution

The Republic of Chile is currently the site of one of the most exciting political experiments in recent memory. Since a popular uprising brought the government to its knees in 2019, the country has embarked on an ongoing process of drafting and adopting a new constitution to replace itsdeeply neoliberal predecessor bequeathed by Chile’s long-time military dictator Augusto Pinochet in 1980. Presented on 4 July of this year and set to be decided upon in a referendum on 4 September, the new constitution marks an important step towards overcoming the institutional legacy of Chile’s troubled past.
