Title: E-DEMOCRACY IN MIDDLE EAST: HARD TO APPROACH
Authors: EYAS EL-QAWASMEH
SUHAIL OWAIS
Keywords: e-Democracy, e-Government, social issues, E-parliament
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: The paper will explore the key benefits and challenges in advancing e-Government for democratic participation and social inclusion, particularly from a Middle Eastern regional perspective (i.e., Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan). The use of online Internet services for applying e-democracy is studied with many clarifying comments and obstacles. The authors suggest that the implementation of e-Democracy requires an environment of confidence that must be created. In addition, a transition period of “real democracy” must be implemented first for some time. Some of the problems with implementing of e-Democracy in the Middle East are presented. In addition, many observations and examples are given to verify the notes of the authors.
