dc.description.abstract This thesis is about governance in modern democracies. It deals with the challenges that democracy is facing in a technological age and the ways in which these challenges may be overcome. It also explores in what ways the information and communication technology can strengthen democracy and may be used to make governance more transparent, based on collaboration and participation with citizens. The ultimate aim of the study is to show that democracy is ever changing, and any challenge may be overcome if it is considered to be an opportunity to improve democracy and make it relevant to contemporary needs and expectations.
