Chile: Interaction between the State and civil society in policies on childhood

This article discusses the public-private links that exist in Chile to collaborate on childhood policies. It analyses the role played by the two sectors and the dimensions and components that are needed to ensure that their collaboration puts the best interests of the child at the forefront. It considers expert opinion through an analysis of content, which makes it possible to identify the relevant dimensions and components of the interaction, which are then prioritized quantitatively using the analytical hierarchical process (ahp) methodology to ensure a positive effect on childhood. The article shows that this interaction is top-down, with the State defining policies and civil society implementing them, which mainly reflects the fact that the public domain manages resources that are largely sustained by the private sector. The conclusion is that there is a challenge in generating horizontal dialogues, in which interaction is not constrained by economic resources but by shared purpose with regard to children.
