AGUIRRE SALA, Jorge Francisco. The dilemmas of the typologies of electronic democracy. Rev. chil. derecho tecnol. [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.1, pp.145-178. ISSN 0719-2584.

Electronic democracy (e-democracy), being the subject of classifications, modalities and typologies, has caused several problems that can be synthesized in the general dilemma: does the electronic version of democracy imply the transition to a regime that exceeds governments’ deficits, or will democratic regimes take advantage of electronic contributions to complement the constitution of their structures and the operation of their institutions, but only perpetuate their current state and structure? Establishing the dilemmas of both parties with a historical review and a typology of e-democracy models is the objective of this analysis. The results reach arguments to dissolve the dilemmas and provide criteria for a taxonomy that explains the mutual influences between ICTs and the demands of democracy.

Keywords : Electronic democracy; democratic models; political participation; transition.
