Uruguay has experienced one of the few successful transitions to good governance in contemporary times. Its positive evolution has started with its democratization, but the last ten years have also seen all IPI components progress well. It is on top of the region with judicial independence and administrative simplicity, but there is room for progress with transparency. The most impressive development, however, is with e-participation, with an increasing number of e-citizens and smart government policies to offer e-services to reduce informality and promote good governance. This is a country from which many lessons can be learned.
