Abstract

The Law on Access to Brazilian Public Information 12,527 of November 18, 2011, also recognized as the Law on Access to Information, provides citizen participation and strengthens the Brazilian public management control instruments. The objective of this article is to promote a critical discussion about the implementation of the Brazilian Access to Information Law, in its legal context and its reflexes in the management of urban information. To achieve its purpose, the methodology was based on the deductive method, which characterize the present research as descriptive, of a qualitative nature, delineated in a non-experimental and bibliographic character. The result reveals the organic disconnection of the Law, as well as its effects, to the existence of the conurbation spaces. The conclusion also reiterates the importance of democratizing access to and use of public information. However, it does not find in the regulations, the existence of urban spaces not limited by the legal boundaries of cities.

Keywords: Urban Information Management; Conurbation; Brazilian Information Law
