3 Brussels, Sept 2002, Jorge Vieira da Silva, EVE project : The perspective of the citizen: why focus on the e- ? What is the social life of the citizen? –Work : contribute to common and individual wealth –Leisure : get reward from common and individual wealth –Politics : get the social life organised for common benefits We believe that Political main priorities are based on a democratic system (Other systems exist, however)

4 Brussels, Sept 2002, Jorge Vieira da Silva, EVE project : The perspective of the citizen: why focus on the e- ? (2) The working environment is being optimised largely through the use of IT Current life is also becoming fully reliant on e-tools (for communication, mobility, management of information, …) It is natural that democratic politics, one of the basic social functions, is also taking benefit from IT

5 Brussels, Sept 2002, Jorge Vieira da Silva, EVE project : E-Voting and e-Citizenship within e- Government environments Managerial model : Digital cities, Administrations on-line, i.e. e-government reengineering Participatory model : e-voting are restrictive as such and converge towards (and will be supported by) new networked deliberative systems

6 Brussels, Sept 2002, Jorge Vieira da Silva, EVE project : Scenarios for 2010 The main challenge today is that the political environment remains democratic This implies that the citizen is effectively involved in the political decision making process EFFECTIVE AND CONSISTENT PARTICIPATION IS KEY

7 Brussels, Sept 2002, Jorge Vieira da Silva, EVE project : Scenarios for 2010 (2) Low participation in the democratic process, both from citizen and from representatives sides, are anti-democratic Any constructive scenario for 2010 implies a high level of participation E-voting is now an engineering issue. E- citizenship based on high level of information exchange and management is the real challenge

14 Brussels, Sept 2002, Jorge Vieira da Silva, EVE project : Conclusions The democratic process shall benefit from IT as much as the rest of citizen social life, or democracy will become marginal Hopes, expectancies, desires, etc. of citizens are monitored, controlled, surveyed in permanence: is a democratic process capable to address them ? Information has long been a synonym of power: will representatives accept (at last !!!) to efficiently share ?
