Citizen Engagement: Emerging Digital Technologies Create New Risks and Value

Tiago Peixoto and Tom Steinberg : 2019

This paper explores the substantial impact of digital technologies both present and emerging on the way citizens engage and the ways through which power is sought, used, or contested. This paper explores what technology might mean for engagement, makes predictions, and offers policy measures for governments to consider. It summarizes ways in which emerging technologies might plausibly promote more effective citizen engagement and also conveys concerns about the negative effects modern digital technologies can have on the governance of nations.
