Electronic Democracy: achievements and challenges
Between November 21st and 25th, 2007, the European Science Foundation ESF - setting science agendas for Europe will hold a research conference on Electronic Democracy: achievements and challenges at Vadstena (Sweden).
This conference will be chaired by Professor Herbert Kubicek of the Institut für Informationsmanagement Bremen (ifib), a partner in the evoice project.
The central aim of the preliminary programme is Electronic Democracy or eDemocracy and how to identify theoretical and methodological challenges for the future research agenda by combining a top-down and a bottom-up approach.
Top-down means providing general inputs from a theoretical or methodological point of view. Bottom-up means to assess and reflect actual research in different subfields in the area of eDemocracy:
The European Science Foundation (75 organisations from 30 European countries) and located at Strasbourg (F), promotes high quality science at a European level. It acts as a catalyst for the development of science by bringing together leading scientists and funding agencies to debate, plan and implement pan-European initiatives.
