ABSTRACT

Open government gives us multiple definitions and trends are identified each with a very

particular theoretical approach. Thus, some argue that open government is a result of

technological change, where Web 2.0 plays a fundamental role and the center of its analysis are

information technologies. In turn, others emphasize the changes in the values of public service

and in the organization, resulting in a new organizational culture public. It also explains that

Open data comes to revolutionize the concept of transparency as it has been implemented. In

order to open government, others say, is the constant strikes up a conversation with citizens to

listen to what they say and ask, who makes decisions based on your needs and preferences,

facilitating the collaboration of citizens and officials in developing its services and

communicating all that decides and makes an open and transparent. Thus, not only is Open

Government transparency, but collaboration and management based on two elements:

transparent collaboration and trust between, citizens and officials and

private sector

(Citizen

Participation) Officials and employees (intergovernmental relations) and, officials and (Public-

Private Partnership).

strategies of this new emerging concept in public administration within the Open Government.

specify the components of this form of government, proposing important pedagogical strategies
