ICT's for democracy in Latin America?

Abstract : Should Latin American governments concentrate their efforts in improving efficiency, transparency and accountability or should they also aim to increase the participation of citizens in decisionmaking? Is there a risk of reinforcing inequality through the promotion of ICT's for democracy in countries with a considerable digital divide? Is there a risk of reinforcing populism, clientelism and concentration of power leaving the promotion of ICT's in hands of strong presidents of the sort that prevail in many Latin American countries today? Based on previous research on Latin America focused on (i) goals and conditions to promote edemocracy; (ii) egovernment developments; and (iii) edemocracy initiatives promoted by governments and civil society organizations, the paper explores edemocracy developments and trends and suggests a landscape for further research.
