Internet, Governance and Democracy: Democratic Transitions in Asia and Denmark
- About the Book
The Internet and other modern information and communication technologies (ICT) challenge existing 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. Asia and Denmark differ widely but, in both cases, the Internet acts as a frontrunner of globalization and forces policy-makers, governments, and civil society alike to consider how to use the Internet. This book comprises the proceedings of a workshop that for the first time brought together leading specialists from Asia and Denmark who presented their latest research on these issues.
