ECDG Call for Papers
As governments seek to remodel and restyle their services, Digital Government is playing an increasingly central role. Issues such as Digital Democracy, the Digital Citizen, interoperability, e-identity and e-voting have become core elements in the development of public sector delivery. These issues together with the importance placed on Joined-up Government and Open Government are relevant at local, regional and central government, as well as at the supranational level such as the European Union. Digital Government encompasses more than just technology – it challenges the way in which public sector service providers and citizens interact. Democratic renewal, the transformation of service delivery, community leadership and citizenship integration are all key elements and Digital Government is also tightly related to legal, economical and organisational fields and as such holds a strong interdisciplinary status. We welcome contributions on any aspect of digital government research – both empirical and practical.
