How transformative is the concept of transparency in the Latin American Constitutionalism?

It is said that the main purpose of the “new Latin American constitutionalism” is to design institutions to achieve human rights fulfilment. On the other hand, this new wave has tried to remedy regional serious democratic deficit, proposing diverse formulas, aimed to open greater opportunities and spaces of control facing a society of distrust due to the significant detriment of the role of trust in social and political functioning.
This paper seeks to analyze how transparency is an integral part of this transformative constitutional process, mainly in countries whose Constitutions have been considered within this new trend: Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador. Starting from an analysis of the instruments related to transparency generated by the OAS, I study the constitutional response to them based on three purposes: Citizen control to combat corruption, the accomplishment of the rights of freedom of expression and access to information, and the strengthening of Democracy.
