Digital Democracy

The Internet is not only a struggle weapon, but turns into a symbol of new forms of participation and organization. The Internet allows a large scale horizontal communication, questioning the classical approach and opening new ways to critic about representative system inevitability. On the other hand, digital democracy is also a new use of the networks by classic politic parties, but without a real change onto their hierarchies or their proposals. Campaigns as the Obama reflect a contradiction between bigger citizenship’s participation that would may counter the influence power of large companies and the “Big Brother” that means the massive use of the surveillance techniques. How can NICs enlarge participation and improve democracy? But too, can they worsen the situation through finer propaganda techniques or to ease dissemination of populist discourses? Which are the risks of digital participation? How can complement politic representation and participation through NTICs?
