Internet, Governance and Democracy: Democratic Transitions from Asian and European Perspectives

E-book

Compiled by Jens Hoff
2006

Insights from leading specialists in Internet studies allow unique comparative perspectives on the use of the Internet and its importance for political processes. The book aims at an understanding of the challenges of democratic transitions that the Internet poses in both Asia and Europe, using Denmark as an example of the latter region.
The Internet and other modern information and communication technologies challenge political thinking, systems and processes all over the world. Whether or not they will lead to more transparency in policy-making and governance – or enhance democratic participation and empowerment – they have certainly provided new opportunities for politicians, governments and civil society. The Internet acts as a frontrunner of globalization and forces policy-makers, governments and civil society alike to consider how to use the Internet.
