Abstract [en]

Implementation of an e-participation system in a low-income region with poor infrastructure, limited access to ICT and low awareness of civic rights and responsibilities, is challenging and requires thorough understanding of the contextual conditions and requirements. Present study provides a qualitative analysis of the implementation phase of an e-participation platform mapping the specific factors that play key roles in defining the access to and the use of the system by the citizens. Social and political context as well as the design and management of the platform are found to be the two crucial dimensions defining successful use of a platform.
