SUMMARY: Through this book the author, Elaine Ford, wants to transmit her knowledge, her experience and the great work undertaken through the Digital Democracy Program, which she has been promoting in Peru for six years. She wants to show how the Internet and technology play a crucial role in the lives of citizens, political parties, public entities, among others. It is a publication with conceptual, theoretical components, current information and analysis; but at the same time with the sample of experiences throughout these years. The international perspective is always present, because these digitalization processes are global.

The chapters have a logical order. Each of them covers a series of areas of the Internet ecosystem that are of special relevance and have been the key axes in the work of Digital Democracy and that, in addition, are transcendental aspects for the Peruvian reality.

The book includes four major chapters: 1) Definitions of Digital Democracy 2) Digital Citizenship: empowerment and change in the digital age 3) Politics in digital times and 4) Internet governance and human rights online.

 This book contributes to reflection to understand how to meet the new challenges brought by the digital revolution in order to strengthen democracy and coexistence among its various actors.
