Abstract

In an era of digital government, citizen-centric governance is a central aim, one that is often predicated on more efficient and responsive service owed, in large part, to greater digital connectivity internally (i.e., to share information in new manners), as well as externally (i.e., to gather information and reach out to citizens and stakeholders). Antiterrorism efforts accentuate this focus, albeit with a very different set of aims. Governments have been quick to establish new antiterrorism and homeland security measures that create new and expanded capacities for gathering, analyzing, and sharing information, both within governments and across governments and other sectors, notably the private sector.
