Transparency, Accountability, and Citizen Participation in Regulatory Institutions: Toward the Digital Era
My dissertation examines the effects of information technologies on transparency, accountability, and citizen participation in three regulatory institutions: administrative agencies, international organizations, and local governments. It explores emerging national and international policies, including online open data and freedom of information, spending and budget transparency, citizen participation in policymaking, and collaborative monitoring of international regimes. The research relies on field studies of online platforms in the United States, Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East.
