Participatory Institutions and Covid-19 Pandemic: a study on the Foz do Iguassu Municipal Tourism Council

Motivated by the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, this article aimed to identify the production of democratic goods during the pandemic in a council whose actions take place on a strongly impacted socioeconomic activity, tourism, in a city known for being one of Brazils main tourist destinations, Foz do Iguassu. Based on the ground theory, the councils legal norms, meeting minutes, and interviews with council members were submitted to content analysis and source triangulation. It is argued that the pandemic caused changes that reflect in the democratic production by the collegiate. There were efforts to maintain the presence of councilors, but Covid-19 aggravated already existing gaps in the production of goods such as transparency.
