    This description of Agustín Carrizosa's work was prepared when Agustín Carrizosa was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
    Introduction
    The development of civil society in Paraguay has been slowed by decades of military dictatorship and political suppression. To change this reality, Agustín Carrizosa is strengthening Paraguay’s citizen organizations by enabling them to better penetrate and impact public policy and facilitate democratic, participatory attitudes among Paraguayan citizens.
