Abstract

Despite their prevalence in all areas of economic and social life, ICTs, and their implications, continue to be largely ignored by UK political science. Yet the potential of modern ICTs to profoundly alter poltical, social and economic relations is extensive. This article is a brief discussion of the main themes and issues that arise from an exploration of ICTs in relation to democracy: that is, electronic democracy.
