Track 2: Open Government and Digital Citizenship: Participation, Engagement, and Empowerment

Open government and digital citizenship refer to participation in the effective use of digital technologies and the Internet to engage with and empower citizens and businesses. This track explores the data openness paradigm enabled by technological developments and the Open Government Data movement, which argue that, if properly “opened” and reused, government data provides great opportunities to promote civic participation and engagement.
