The rights of individuals, as well as the exercise of those rights, are fundamental in the development of any society, which is why the current Constitution opened a field of action for citizen participation, based on the precept that sovereignty lies in the people and whose will is the basis of the authority exercised through the organs of public power and the democratic means provided for. The field study and specifically the survey revealed that the young people of the province are unaware not only of their rights as citizens, but also of the existence of mechanisms for citizen participation, such as the empty chair. With the purpose of diagnosing the real state of citizen participation and social control exercised by young people in Ecuador, survey instruments were applied that evaluated through a complex methodology that integrates the IADOV method and the neutrosophic logic, the transcendence of the reversal of the burden of proof over the non-existence of untimely dismissal in Ecuador.
