Abstract

This working paper suggest that most global governance institutions in health and finance have developed online services to increase their transparency and efficiency. In other words, these organizations increase the capacity of their members and selected stakeholders to access information, build capacity and take part in decisions. Based on the very nature of ICTs, it is possible to conclude new ICTs have a positive impact on the capacity of marginalized actors to participate in global governance. Through internet and online platforms, marginalized actors take part in multiple participative debates and soft regulation instruments that can enrich or divert the production of public legitimacy. They take part in multiple forums, open debates and collective decision-making processes that enhance information sharing and capacity building.

Keywords: e-participation, health, finance, international organisations, governance, ICT
