Two e-democracy conferences in September

  • Featuring some heavyweight e-participation academics including Ann Macintosh (my former boss). The main theme is now that the applications are available, it’s time to ask to what extent can E-Democracy support and enrich our democracy?
    • What and where are the interfaces, what methods can be used to integrate E-participation in present politics public administration processes?
    • How can we ensure that the greatest number of people are reached and are able to use the means of participation?
    • How can the modern media support political education?
    • How can the Internet increase participation in political discussion?
    • What are the limitations and the risks of E-Democracy?

Deadlines for submission to both are very soon…

And for a bit of light relief, here’s a new online politics journal, mostly aimed at the European context as far as I can tell:
