Regions as the product of social construction

On 2 March 1988, the President of Peru enacted Law 24793 creating the Region of Grau, the first region in Latin America to have the status of an autonomous territorial entity endowed with a legal identity under public law. This is expected to have a strong impact as an example for other countries in which (territorial) decentralization figures prominently in political discourse and projects.
