E-Democracy Links, UK Government E-Democracy Report and more ...

Over the last year, governments around the world have started to 
explore "e-democracy" policies and applications that complement their 

initial focus on e-government services.  This is an important trend 
to follow and requires civic activity from the local level on up 
around the world. Below are some key resources to help you explore 
e-democracy-related issues.

1. New E-Democracy Links Flyer

A simple two-page flyer with links to the top "E-Democracy Resources" 

is now available in HTML, PDF, or Word format.  The flyer may be 
redistributed in print at conferences and other events.  Access the 
flyer at:

2. UK Government Releases Major E-Democracy Paper, Host Online 

The UK national government recently released a major paper on 
e-democracy titled, "In the service of democracy."  This is the major 

e-democracy event of the year and will likely spawn similar policy 
development and e-democracy projects in other nations.
