Executive Director of Fratelli Tutti Political School
Juan Maquieyra is the Executive Director of Fratelli Tutti Political School, an organization impulsed by Pope Francis that seeks to forge a global community of young leaders with a political vocation inspired by Pope Francis. The aim of Fratelli Tutti is to co-create processes of social transformation oriented to common good, and ventured to propose new paradigms from the social and existential peripheries of the planet.
Juan is the former Chief of Advisors of the Mayor of the City of Buenos Aires, and also former President of the Housing Authority of the City of Buenos Aires where he led the most ambitious slum upgrading program in Latin America. During his time at the Buenos Aires City Government, he proposed a model for public policy design based on the principle of “process over proyect” where citizen participation in the design, implementation and evaluation of policies is more important than the project itself. The results of that model can be seen in the present by visiting Villa 20, Villa Rodrigo Bueno or Villa Fraga in Buenos Aires.
Juan holds a Masters Degree from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He was a Visiting Scholar at the New School in New York, a professor of Public Policy at Universidad Austral and professor of Political Science at the Universidad Católica Argentina.
