Abstract [en]

There is often too much confidence in the capacity of technologies to solve complex democratic problems. Information and communication technologies (ICT) have rather widened the gaps between different groups. ICT strengthens undemocratic influence on the political agenda, the information becomes more difficult to overview and interpret and the fragmentation of the media increases the differences between various groups’ worldviews and reduces involvement in the local common. A methodology that stands on a radical democratic ground departs from a broader understanding of citizens as e-participants. To find more sustainable e-strategies for participation we have studied the information structures in relation to an urban planning process in Husby, Stockholm. Based on these findings we suggest an IT-strategy to strengthen existing democratic structures. This entails redistribution of the means to participate with public available decision-support systems, a clarification of the unequal representation in the public sphere, support of a variety of alternative public spheres, and to strengthen recognition of the community through a shared archive.
