Abstract

ROJAS HERNANDEZ, JORGE. CITIZEN PARTICIPATION, QUALITY OF LIFE AND TERRITORIAL TRANS-REGIONAL JUSTICE: A SOCIAL BASIS FOR COMMON GOOD. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.1, pp.21-42. ISSN 1414-753X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1809-4422asocex0001v2012017.

For globalized local worlds undergoing transformation, territorial interventions are increasingly producing larger social and environmental impacts. Macro-interventions profoundly alter the functioning of ecosystems and human habitats or communities, becoming inclusive in extreme situations of exploitation or extraction, risking their very existence. Therefore it is necessary to develop a system or Social Baseline that clearly establishes the philosophical bases, restrictions and criteria that regulate and curb the negative impacts of such interventions. This implies defining methods for citizen participation. This article focuses on defining a basic framework with criteria and indicators that regulate the impact of macro-interventions - of different natures - on human territories and communities.

Keywords : Citizen Participation; Territorial Intervention; Justice; Quality of Life; Sustainability.
