▢ About

Since the very onset of Digital Governance, digital technologies have been implemented to achieve citizen-centric values, such as inclusion, participation, engagement, and transparency in government. However, two decades of digital governance research provide ample empirical evidence that these goals are seldom realised in practice. To achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the digital governance research community must turn its gaze from the internal machinery of government organisations towards the people and the creation of sustainable digital governance for a democratic, equitable, and inclusive future. Under the theme Digital Governance for Democratic, Equitable, and Inclusive Societies, the 16th edition of the International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance aims to provide a platform for the examination and discussions of the problems and solutions of such an undertaking.
