9(2) CeDEM Issue (Edited by Qinfeng Zhu and Noella Edelmann)
The second issue of JeDEM in 2017, co-edited with Qinfeng Zhu from City University of Hong Kong, is out now!
This yearly issue is known as the “CeDEM issue”. It traditionally presents some of the best papers from the Conference for eDemocracy and Open Government (CeDEM) held earlier on in the year, and also includes the best papers from the sister conference CeDEM Asia 2016 held in Daegu, Republic of Korea.
This time, JeDEM focuses on “Open Government and the Open Government Partnership (OGP)”. It contributes to the ongoing dialogue regarding the impact of the OGP on the way that openness is unfolding worldwide. This issue comprises one invited article, three research articles, and one reflection.
Open Access: You can access JeDEM free of charge, and also comment on the articles. We hope you enjoy this special issue of JeDEM and wish you a nice reading time, maybe during the holidays or afterwards.
