 ECLAC Announces its 2011 Course Offering
Focus: Electronic and Mobile Government, ICT for MDGs, Citizen Engagement, Internet Governance
Description: ECLAC, through ILPES (its central training body) offers courses on various economic and social issues of the region.

The Latin American and Caribbean Institute for Economic and Social Planning (ILPES) is a permanent institution with its own identity and is part of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). It was founded in 1962 and its mission is to support the Governments of the region in the field of public administration, through research, advisory and, in particular, training activities.

The efforts made by ILPES in the area of training may be illustrated by the fact that in its 50 years of existence it has provided various types of courses for over 25,000 participants from the countries in the region, and mainly from the public sector. The teaching personnel for these courses were from universities or academic centres in Latin America and the Caribbean and also private-sector and civil-society institutions.

ILPES/ECLAC has the comparative advantage of working in very specialized areas and offering short courses which are generally not available in this form in the programmes of academic centres in Ibero-America. These courses allow a combination of theory and practice, and systematize the experiences of the countries in the region.

The language of instruction is Spanish and the courses are usually from one to five weeks in duration.

 PROSPECTS FOR E-GOVERNMENT IN LATIN AMERICA: Satisfaction with democracy, Social Accountability, and direct democracy
Focus: Electronic and Mobile Government, ICT for MDGs, Citizen Engagement, Internet Governance
Description: ABSTRACT
Direct democracy “from below” constitutes a strong tool of social accountability. Powerful
arguments have been made regarding the information problem associated with direct democracy. In an increasingly complex world, citizens have trouble gathering enough information to make decisions on complicated issues. E-government offers a unique opportunity to solve, at least partially, the information problem. Granting access to information and services, e-government allows citizens to become more acquainted with the governing process. In order to assess the potentiality of extending e-government I d an index of E-government Potentiality. This index is constructed through the combination of diverse variables (education index main telephone lines per 100 inhabitants estimated PC per 100 inhabitants and Internet users per 100 inhabitants). It is then compared with the actual use of e-government in the region (data came from West et al 2002). Surprisingly, there is not a direct proportional relation between those countries with high potentiality and those with actual broad use of e-government. The theoretical claim used to explain the lack of this relationship comes from the hypothesis that in developing countries where citizens are more satisfied with their democracy and have
high degrees of interpersonal trust, the political will—a critical variable pointed out by the egovernment literature—is not strong enough to engage in costly reforms and develop e-government. In other words, politicians lack enough incentives to alter the status quo. Why should they change if most people are basically satisfied with the state of affairs? Where countries have high levels of interpersonal trust and citizens are satisfied with democracy, e-government is less likely to develop.
