This article analyses how communities and its representatives have been involved in public dialogue and deliberation processes in Bolivia and Guatemala. It draws on the author's experience and personal reflection in supporting and facilitating community participation in public dialogue initiatives in these countries. First, Retolaza comments briefly on the origin and current role of dialogue and deliberation in Latin America. Then, he reflects upon his own experience to illustrate two cases where communities and their organizations have been involved in these processes, both at local and national level. On the basis of these cases, Retolaza concludes with some key lessons and challenges to consider when supporting multi-stakeholder dialogic processes wherein communities are involved.
