The extraordinary protests of 2019 revealed to the world a massive gap between the output of Chile’s democratic system and the demands of ordinarily Chileans. Even though many international observers viewed Chile as a political and economic model, public dissatisfaction with the functioning of both the political and the economic system is extraordinarily high. The current constitution-writing process is widely viewed as a mean to address the soaring social demands that have shaken the Chilean political system. But can it? Can institutional reform–redesigning the political rules of the game—help to restore public trust in a context of intense social and economic demands?
