Smart Cities and Open Government:

Local responses to participation, public information and democracy

September, 23th. 2022

Faculty of Political Science and Sociology.

Complutense University of Madrid (UCM- Spain)

Presentation

Local governments have a particular advantage to promote and create collaborative and participatory governance and policy networks in their territories, due to their proximity with local stakeholders. Local governance is also a laboratory for digitalization. But decentralization and local autonomy are not automatically translated in good governance, and the need for transparency, access to information and public participation seems essential to achieve local democracy goals .

In-between IPSA world congresses, RC05, RC10 and RC22 want to meet with international experts on local government, political and public participation, access to information and public information management, to discuss the progress and challenges of local and subnational governments as fundamental actors for collaborative, participatory and democratic governance.
