About this book

On Line Citizenship discusses the evolutionary trends of cities in terms of e-government in the present and future technological scenario. The focus is on the transformation of the relationships between city administrations and citizens due to Information and Communication Technology. On a broad perspective, the book intends to present opportunities and threats in the development of on line citizenship in the framework of the European Union.  On Line Citizenship gathers original contributions and documents presented at the International Conference On Line Citizenship - Emerging Technologies for European Cities promoted by Telecities-Eurocities and the City of Venice in co-operation with Venice International University and sponsored by SUN Microsystems, held in Venice, May 30-31 2003.

The book presents e-government issues from an institutional as well as a practical point of view through the contributions of distinguished authors representative of the European Union, the European network of cities (Telecities) and the Italian Government.  On Line Citizenship offers an innovative approach in the analysis of technology's  evolutionary paths in e-government through a comparison with e-business trends.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book collects the papers presented at the International Conference on On Line Citizenship, held in Venice, Italy, in May 2003. … the book introduces a novel way to look at e-Government issues, more focused on local participation stemming from the experiences of some European cities. Some technical details about the presented projects are discussed, together with interesting political and sociological considerations, thus making the book relevant to a broad audience … ." (Massimo Mecella, Journal of E-Government, Vol. 2 (3), 2005)
