Abstract

Digital democracy has been significantly stimulated in Brazil and plays a key role in the outcomes of digital governance strategies. Created in 2009, the initiative called e-Democracia was developed by the Chamber of Deputies of the National Congress of Brazil to engage citizens in the process of elaborating law proposals. The goal of this article is to present the results of a research regarding a virtual legislative community involved with the development of the Brazilian Proposition on Civil Rights Framework for the Internet. The results discuss into what extent e-Democracia is fulfilling its purpose of stimulating digital participatory democratic practices.

Keywords: Online Political Participation, Digital Democracy, e-Democracia
