Scholars of law, communication, and political science explore benefits, drawbacks, opportunities, and impediments to conducting democracy, government, and governance on the Internet. They cover digital democracy, transparency, and the role of information and communication technology; cyberspace as the locus for political dialogue and participation; the politics of information and communication technology and their influence on democracy; collective governance and the social aspects of affirmative action and non-discrimination; and the identity of the subject in the era of governance, globalization, and information and communication technology.
