This year marks 25 years since Peru ratified International Labour Organization (ILO) Convention No. 169 on the Rights of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples. The objective of this Convention was, inter alia, to recognize the fundamental rights of indigenous peoples linked to their participation in the political life of a given country. In view of the foregoing, the controversy over the application of the prior consultation procedure for investment projects has taken on special relevance with regard to its analysis and development at both the doctrinal and jurisprudential levels. In this context, this article will briefly seek to develop the characteristics of the right to consultation and its current application. The objective is to extrapolate this application to the electricity sector, differentiating the cases in which this consultation has been carried out and which have not, thus allowing us to determine at least the aspects to be improved and deepened for the effective and efficient application of this right.
