Politics recovered: “We are not going to do what hasn’t worked before”

Camilo Romero is the Governor of Nariño, in southwestern Colombia, a department with a high percentage of rural population and huge ethnic diversity. Español Português

Camilo Romero won the governorship flying three original flags: "social innovation", "collaborative economy" and "open government".

A transformer, he believes in politics as a tool and he was keen to tell us what he hopes to see happening in Nariño at the end of his 8-semester mandate. This is one of the most valuable and clearer interviews in the series, in which words are weighty because they are backed by facts.

Below, the full interview:

Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.
