ICT can drive dramatic transformations in the quantity and quality of communication and interaction of government organizations with citizens, revitalizing and strengthening the modern representative democracy which currently faces big problems of reduced citizens trust and involvement.This book deals with the application of these e-participation ideas in the special and difficult, and at the same time highly interesting, national context of Southern Europe and the Balkans.

The first chapter provides an overview of e-participation concepts and practices whilst the following chapters analyse pilot applications of e-participation concepts in eight different Southern European and Balkan countries (Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Serbia, Albania, Greece, Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)). They cover both the classical e-participation paradigm, based on official e-participation spaces created, operated and controlled by government organizations as well as emerging new e-participation paradigms including e-participation based on web 2.0 social media, and scientific-level e-participation, based on opening government data to the scientific community.This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies.
