Enabling Citizen Participation in Gov 2.0: An Empowerment Perspective

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume13...
Abstract: In order to investigate the low levels of citizen participation in Gov2.0, we used the theoretical lens of empowerment to better understand the use of Gov2.0. The paper includes an analysis of both management and psychology literatures; elaborates and discusses the conceptual issues of citizen empowerment, satisfaction, and participation in Gov2.0. A research model to enhance the understanding of citizen participation in Gov 2.0 is presented in this paper. The model includes four factors pertaining to empowerment theory: sense of impact, competence, meaningfulness and sense of control, which are believed to influence citizen participation in Gov2.0. A further positive outcome of citizen empowerment is higher levels of satisfaction with Gov 2.0. These suggestions make a strong case for citizen empowerment in Gov 2.0 to enhance the understanding of citizen participation in Gov. 2.0 as well as providing useful information for government agencies.

Exploring User Participation Practice in Public E-Service Development – Why, How and in Whose...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume16...
User participation is seen as an important enabler for successful public e-service development. However, at the same time development of public e-services is still often characterised by an internal government perspective with little consideration for external users’ perspectives. This paper challenges the overly positive attitude that is surrounding user participation in e-government research. The paper aims to illustrate and problematize various aspects that influence why, how, and in whose interest user participation is conducted in public e-service development. First, via a literature review, we identify a set of dimensions for critically exploring how, why, and in whose interest user participation is conducted in public e-service development projects. Second, we use these dimensions in order to characterise and analyse three empirical public e-service development cases in order to test the utility, usefulness, and feasibility of the identified dimensions. Our findings...

Using SMS Texting to Encourage Democratic Participation by Youth Citizens: a Case Study of a...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume4-...
Public administrations across Europe take the view that using digital media for consultation with citizens will help to increase their democratic participation. In the UK, the Government has encouraged local authorities to experiment with new electronic communication channels for this purpose. This paper presents a case study in which one such medium, the mobile phone, is being used in an attempt to raise participation amongst young people. It evaluates a project set up to use SMS text messaging as a means of electronic consultation with young people by a council in the North of England. Specifically, it examines the effect of text messaging on democratic participation by the young and the effect of this type of consultation on the processes of the political administration. This case study identifies a number of organizational, social and cultural issues that may limit the scope for using this technology to increase youth participation and change the relationship between young...

Competent Electronic Participation Channels in Electronic Democracy

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejeg-volume7-...
Electronic Democracy is appearing in political agendas across countries and boarders. This paper refers to electronic participation channels implemented to digitalize decision processes in an electronic democracy. Electronic participation includes the sub processes of information acquisition and formation of an opinion. The function of efficient electronic participation in electronic democracy is crucial and indispensable. Electronic Democracy provides citizens with the opportunity to engage efficiently in democratic processes. Current technology can be perceived as an evolution of traditional communication linkages between political representatives and citizens. These can provide an "extensive library" of information and a "meeting point" for political debate. A surplus of existing technologies provides the means to enhance the unidirectional and bidirectional communication paths between citizens and involved political entities. Such a technological deployment though must meet a...

Expanding the Capacity to Increase Cultural Participation

issuu.com/saadaqeel/docs/expanding_the_capacity_to_in...
The proposed project described in this document aims at generating new perspectives for looking at the relationships between arts and communities in which it explores the cultural participation in the context of people’s daily lives. The results of the study can contribute to policy-making based on a solid research foundation. The centerpiece of this study is to capture the complex factors affecting individual’s participation. By gaining a better understanding of such factors, the study will suggest how arts organizations can develop more targeted and, therefore, more effective strategies for encouraging participation (Kevin McCarthy and Kimberly Jinnett 2001).
