Alternative approaches to governance in the information society: Workshop on 'Technology, governance and citizenship'

IT for Change
2007
Type of resource: 
Presentations
The information society phenomenon presents a paradigmatic shift in redefining political, social and institutional systems. However, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) which constitute a vital component of this phenomenon are mostly guided by neo-liberal principles and are nested in technical domains, resulting in the absence of traditional development actors in ICT policy making spaces. Further, e-governance spaces are devoid of any debate on governance reform concepts of active citizenship, participatory democracy, etc.
