e-Government, e-Democracy and Citizens Empowerment in Italy

Please note that the job is no longer active!

EU focuses on e-government (in particular on open data and e-participation) in order to activate citizens empowerment, involving them in consultative and deliberative processes to improve their trust in democratic institutions and the democratic responsiveness. The aim of the research is to analyse the participatory web based systems and the tools for the e-government and their mutual relationship; a specific focus will be represented by the study of how digital media can improve the e-government strategies and how they can support the “deliberative talk”.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
