E-governance leadership is about involving citizens and civil society in public decision-making processes and in service delivery. This message is underpinning the main theme Transformative eGovernment and Innovation: Creating a Better Future for All of the United Nations Public Service Forum, Day and Awards Ceremony which took place in Manama, the Kingdom of Bahrain, from 24 to 27 June 2013.

Digital communication tools have not so far produced a dramatic increase in public participation or trust in representative democracy, neither have they hailed the end of these institutions. However, thanks to communication technologies and the Internet, society is becoming more inclined to direct-action democracy.

Inštitut za elektronsko participacijo in Mreža nevladnih organizacij za vključujočo informacijsko družbo sta s predstavitvijo Participatory democracy as substance of e-governance sodelovala na mednarodni konferenci Reinforcement of eGovernance in the Danube Region. Predstavitev je izpostavila nujnost delovanja participativne demokracije pri vzpostavljanju odprte in pregledne e-uprave ter vloge nevladnih organizacij kot ključnih akterjev pri naslavljanju izzivov digitalne družbe v javnem interesu.

Political parties are facing many challenges when interacting with citizens both off-line and on-line. Low public confidence, decreasing voter turnout and using internet for politics-as-usual are amongst them. These issues were reflected during two regional conferences “Information Technologies and Political Participation” and “The role of the political parties in the electoral process”.

FORSEE SWOT analysis of ICT related aspects and key trends in eGovernment in the Southeast European countries in the last 5 years shows that Human Capital is the major strength of the eGovernment development in the region, but e-Participation is very low.
