Gobierno Abierto, participación popular y el Poder Judicial en el Estado Constitucional

The open government represents a new paradigm for public management insofar as, unlike traditional vision, it recognizes and strengthens the various voices of society in the construction of the Public Administration. By increasing transparency, the open government allows society to have more access to information before being held solely by the bureaucratic apparatus and by political leaders, thus reducing the asymmetry of information among these actors. However, the institutionalization of channels, spaces and participative methods for the systemic organization of social participation is fundamental. Thus, access to information – enabled by transparency – and the opening of spaces and mechanisms of citizen's incidence in public policies become prominent elements. The objective of the investigation is to present, from the institutional dialogues, how the implementation of the open government practice can improve the decision-making standards of the judiciary.

Alcances, eficacia y autoridad del precedente constitucional

In Argentina, a growing tendency has been noted to recognize precedent of a sort, particularly when formulated through a long course of decisions pronounced by the highest court of the land on constitutional matters.

The basic idea is that, in order to give firmness and certainly to the constitutional values enunciated by the highest courts, it is necessary to establish a solid and compulsory body of case-law, or jurisprudence, formed by a continuous link of cases.
