Importance of time divide for e-democracy
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
E(lectronic)-democracy has the potential to promote democracy through the usage of Information Communication Technology (ICT), especially for direct democracy via increased citizen participation.
The paper discusses one aspect of rising importance and should be taken into consideration while discussing e-democracy, namely, time divide or the division into time-rich and time-poor. This division can become more visible and important in the longer perspective than today’s existing digital divide or illiteracy of using Internet.
This is an exploratory paper and the subject will need more investigation in order to compare the situation in different countries and under longer time periods.
