“Guatemala’s evolving mobile sector, representative of the region, shows how this technology can offer unprecedented participation in both local and global civic conversations and actions. It is presenting an opportunity for nation-building (however nascent) and democratization that neither the Guatemalan government nor U.S. and European foreign policy have been able to do.” Kara Andrade looks at Guatemala's “mobile phone democracy” in the latest volume of ReVista: Harvard Review of Latin America.
