Abstract [en]

This paper takes off from a case study of an e-dialogue - a form of e-democracy in a multicultural Swedish municipalty. In spite of high policy pressure and cómmitment the application was a failure. We thus discuss four potential challenges to e-democracy based on the case study, with general implications. We have identified four challenges: the limits of technology; the lack of issues; the lack of real influence; and a weak sense of community. While these may explain failure, if addressed they may also open up possibilities for success.
