Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Web 2.0 technologies including blogs for journal writing, wikis for collaborative editing, mash-ups for combing contents, social media for interaction, virtual worlds for simulation, crowdsourcing for task outsourcing, and others redefine how we communicate, share our views and react to the issues that concern us. Aware of their potential, governments are adopting such technologies to engage citizens in developing policies, making decisions, enlisting support and mobilizing action towards a desirable social change, and generally to co-create a new form of government – Government 2.0.

The discussion what Government 2.0 precisely means is ongoing. However, the main objective converges on the application of web 2.0 technologies to proactively engage citizens and other stakeholders in government decisions and other governance processes beyond the election time frame, as well as to respond to their demands more effectively and efficiently.

This special issue of Future Internet focuses broadly on various aspects of Government 2.0, from technical and organizational, through social and political, to legal. Original contributions are welcome on the topics including but not limited to the following:

  • Policy lifecycles for Government 2.0
  • Policy frameworks for Government 2.0
  • New legislation requirements for Government 2.0
  • Privacy and data protection in Government 2.0
  • Government 2.0 data sharing
  • Government 2.0 security
  • Government 2.0 risk assessment
  • Inter-organizational collaboration in Government 2.0
  • Government 2.0 services
  • Government 2.0 infrastructure
  • Harnessing new technologies in Government 2.0
  • Citizen engagement through Government 2.0
  • e-Participation in Government 2.0
  • Citizen empowerment through Government 2.0
  • Government 2.0 measurement systems
  • Best practices in Government 2.0
  • Government 2.0 for disaster prevention
