There has been a fair amount of research on democracy, citizenship and 
the Net in Finland.

The Information society institute at University of Tampere stopped its 
operations in 2005 but their publications can be found at 
http://www.uta.fi/laitokset/ISI/english/publications.html - and the 
people can be easily reached.

In Helsinki, Sinikka Sassi http://www.valt.helsinki.fi/staff/ssassi/ is 
working on citizenship and info soc and she would also be able to point 
out other people investigating the area. In Turku, Pekka Räsänen 
(http://users.utu.fi/pekras/index.html) has published a fair amount.

At University of Joensuu there have been interesting projects on local 
info soc projects although not all of these are about the net per se: 
Johanna Uotinen (johanna.uotinen at joensuu.fi) is a good person to contact.

The sponsored portals (http://www.tietoyhteiskunta.fi/in_english/) 
(http://e.finland.fi/) tend to little critical edge but archives on 
publications and such.

Hope this is of some help.
