Within the framework of “political experimentation”, a perspective from which to observe the vibrant development of political innovation in Latin America – and also in Spain -, we have published the serie of The ecosystem of an open democracy article. This is a Democracia Abierta initiative in collaboration with apps4citizens, a Barcelona-based platform that promotes the development of technology for purposes of social and political collective commitment.

For some years now, we have been witnessing the emergence of relational, crossover, participatory power. This is the territory that gives technopolitics its meaning and prominence, the basis on which a new vision of democracy – more open, more direct, more interactive – is being developed and embraced. It is a framework that overcomes the closed architecture on which the praxis of governance – closed, hierarchical, one-way – has been cemented in almost all areas, resulting in high levels of disaffection towards traditional organizations: parties and institutions, unions and non-profit organizations, the media and the universities.

What are the essential elements to understand this new scenario? How are power roles being reshaped? How do technology platforms contribute to this transformation? The answers to these questions are key to understanding this new ecosystem.

To this end, we have commissioned a series of articles, covering the different aspects which are contributing to the emergence of the ecosystem of an open democracy, published during the first semester of 2017 and collected in this ebook.

Get the story the Fake News media doesn't want you to hear in the #1 New York Times bestseller: a withering indictment of the Deep State plot against Trump and a firsthand account of the real presidency, based on interviews with the Trump family and top administration officials. At this point in American history, we are the victims of a liberal sabotage of the presidency unlike anything we've ever witnessed. Nevertheless President Trump continues to fight every day to keep his promise to Make America Great Again. Today that bold idea has already led to a conservative judge on the Supreme Court, tax reform, and deregulation that has unleashed an economy stronger than anyone could have imagined. But there are dark forces that seek to obstruct and undermine the president and reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. They are part of a wide-ranging conspiracy that would seem incredible if it weren't being perpetrated openly. Driven by ambition, blinded by greed, and bound by a common goal-to unseat the 45th President of the United States-this cabal is determined to maintain its wrongful hold on national political power. Fox News host Jeanine Pirro uncovers the elements of this conspiracy, including:"Fake news" propaganda,Law enforcement corruption at the highest levels,National security leaks by the intelligence community,Bureaucratic resistance to lawful and constitutional executive orders issued by the duly elected president,Crooked deals with foreign governments by U.S. officials sworn to defend our Constitution.It's about time the American public knows the truth about the plot to bring down the Trump presidency. By the time you've finished this book, you'll agree with Judge Pirro that the only way to stop these hoodlums is to Take Them Out in Cuffs!
In this candid new political memoir from Senator John McCain, an American hero reflects on his life—and what matters most.

“I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here. Maybe I’ll have another five years. Maybe, with the advances in oncology, they’ll find new treatments for my cancer that will extend my life. Maybe I’ll be gone before you read this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable. But I’m prepared for either contingency, or at least I’m getting prepared. I have some things I’d like to take care of first, some work that needs finishing, and some people I need to see. And I want to talk to my fellow Americans a little more if I may.”

So writes John McCain in this inspiring, moving, frank, and deeply personal memoir. Written while confronting a mortal illness, McCain looks back with appreciation on his years in the Senate, his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency against Barack Obama, and his crusades on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Always the fighter, McCain attacks the “spurious nationalism” and political polarization afflicting American policy. He makes an impassioned case for democratic internationalism and bi-partisanship. He tells stories of his most satisfying moments of public service, including his work with another giant of the Senate, Edward M. Kennedy. Senator McCain recalls his disagreements with several presidents, and minces no words in his objections to some of President Trump’s statements and policies. At the same time, he offers a positive vision of America that looks beyond the Trump presidency.

The Restless Wave is John McCain at his best.
 En el marco de nuestro interés por lo que hemos denominado «experimentación política», y que nos abre una ventana para observar el vibrante desarrollo de la innovación política en toda América Latina —y también en España—, hemos lanzado una serie de artículos que hemos denominado «El ecosistema de la democracia abierta». Se trata de una iniciativa que Democracia Abierta ha impulsado con apps4citizens, plataforma que promueve la creación de tecnología para el compromiso social y político colectivo.

De unos años a esta parte, asistimos a la emergencia del poder relacional, de la transversalidad, de la participación. Este es el enclave que da sentido y protagonismo a la tecnopolítica, base sobre la cual se conceptualiza y se acoge una nueva visión de la democracia: más abierta, más directa, más interactiva. Un marco que supera la arquitectura cerrada sobre la cual se han cimentado las praxis de gobernanza —cerradas, jerárquicas, unidireccionales— en casi todos los ámbitos. Conllevando altos niveles de desafección en las organizaciones tradicionales: de los partidos a las instituciones, de los sindicatos a las organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro, de los medios de comunicación a las universidades.

¿Qué elementos son imprescindibles para comprender este nuevo escenario? ¿Cuál es la reconfiguración de roles de poder en la que estamos inmersos? ¿Qué papel tienen las plataformas tecnológicas en esta transformación? Todas ellas son cuestiones clave para entender este nuevo ecosistema.

Para intentar dar algunas respuestas, hemos diseñado y encargado esta colección de artículos, que se han publicado en Democracia Abierta, durante el primer semestre de 2017 y que recogemos en este ebook.
