Eparticipation In Slovenian E Government Delakorda

  1. 1. Information and Communication Technologies: from Modern to Information Society Univerzitetno in raziskovalno središče Novo mesto 19.-20. september 2008 e-PARTICIPATION IN SLOVENIAN e-GOVERNMENT Simon Delakorda (Institute for Electronic Participation - INePA)
  2. 2. Empirical Facts
  3. 3. Explanation Hypotheses Slovene e-government state of the art in the area of e-Participation / e-Democracy is a result of:  Implementation deficit  Development deficit
  4. 4. Methodology  Slovene government ministries web sites analysis (e-democracy tools typology; Trechsel, 2003)  Specific case studies analysis  E-government policy documents analysis (typology of e-democracy; Hagen, 1996)  Informal correspondence with government officials
  5. 5. Results I. - Implementation deficit  Earlier e-government strategies favoured electronic democratization concept (strengthening representative democracy)  E-government strategy 2006: Republic of Slovenia among 10 most developed e-democracies in the world  Conceptual shift towards participatory and direct democracy (e-pools, e-consultations, e- referendum etc.)  e-Democracy neglected by implementation plans
  6. 6. Results II. - Development deficit  all government ministries provided public information e-access  8 ministries out of fifteen offered an e-mail address for sending comments on draft legislation  Little success with moderated on-line forums  Web 2.0 applications rarely available  E-Democracy web 1.0 portal not yet finalized
  7. 7. Interpretation Implementation and development deficit of e- Participation are results of a technocratic understanding of political democracy and citizenship:  e-Participation as technological issue  e-Participation as legal issue  Top down controlled e-participation in order to secure objective and rational support for political elites interest
  8. 8. Possible solutions  Adoption of Government Law on public participation and co-decision (e-participation regulation): − Political citizens are not e-government consumers − Political freedom should mean that citizens have the democratic right and instruments to reject government and political elites decisions without being sanctioned  Integration of knowledge and resources between public administration and civil society  Technology reorientation towards web 2.0 for strengthening active citizenship communities  Electronic strong democracy (Grossman, 1995)
