Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This research seeks to analyze from a critical point of view, the effectiveness of legislation on transparency and access to information, for the democratic deepening of modern societies, in the context of Information and Communication Technologies. For this purpose, an analytical and interpretative methodology is applied. One of the most outstanding results of this study is the behavior of the citizens that make up these societies, in relation to the use or disuse of the mechanisms that the legislation on transparency makes available to them. In this sense, the main conclusion is that, even when transparency laws maintain high quality standards in Latin America, the common citizen has not developed a genuine interest in active participation as an addressee of such legislation, nor does he or she understand it as a fundamental democratic element.
