Book explores technology in public service
How can technologies be best used to engage residents in government activities? Who has used them successfully, and to what end? What are the policy implications of expanding technology’s role in civic interaction? Those questions and more are explored in a new book from the Washington-based Public Technology Institute and Paris-based ITEMS International. “Beyond e-Government & e-Democracy: A Global Perspective,” collects the thoughts of 44 authors from around the globe in 27 chapters and case studies on topics such as Internet voting, community networks, e-government and competition.
