Social Media Track
EGOV-CeDEM-ePart 2019
Conference CfP: 
Submission website: 

Digital and social media are central for government, public
administration,  democratic and political processes and communication.
One the one hand they are increasingly important interface between
governments, the public sector and their respective publics, and on the
other hand, they also play an important role for innovation in the

nature of collaboration within public organizations, across governance
networks, impacting political communication and campaigning. Whilst
social media is extensively used in politics and by political figures,

and to develop a social media strategy, how to implement them for
operational activities and the digital transformation of the
organisation, improve services and achieve change and strategic goals.
