What is e-democracy? • E-democratic perspectives on citizens stress the deliberative qualities of the human being. It means that the citizens are assumed to reflect on social conditions and express their opinions in ongoing debates. This is an important difference to the perspective of e-government which considers the citizens as customers and clients with different needs and desires. The purpose of e-government is to meet peoples demand concerning e. g. social service in the most effective and economic way. Citizen participation as conception and empirical phenomenon is a condition of e-governance; in particular of a vivid edemocracy since citizen participation seems as an imperative for deliberation and real debate. – Signe Bock Segaard (UIB) • In e-democracy, it is not only the communication between politicians and citizen (G 2 C) that is important, but also the communication between citizens (C 2 C).
