Minorities and E-governance: How ICT Is Changing Ethnopolitics
15 February 2022
Hosted by Vello Pettai
E-governance encompasses the continually evolving interface between public administration and internet-based technologies. It involves citizens being able to use different on-line systems in order to manage as well as participate in governmental or administrative matters. On the one hand, e-governance promises to equalize populations via a more uniform treatment of citizen demands and needs. At the same time, there are a number of areas where e-governance needs a minority perspective. This online talk opened up this new horizon of research and asked what impact e-governance will have on minority issues.
