Understanding public policy online

About Policy and Internet

Policy & Internet (P&I) calls for papers reporting on innovative, high quality research addressing the changing relationship between public policy, the Internet and related technologies. A significant proportion of economic, social and political life now takes place online, bringing new practices, norms and structures, and challenging existing models of policy-making. This shift has major implications for public policy in areas such as working life, the economy, healthcare, transport, development, law and justice, democracy, and security—as well as for citizen-government relations, and how the internet itself is governed. Fully multidisciplinary in scope, Policy & Internet aims to fill a gap in policy knowledge and research by addressing public policy issues in all sectors, and at all levels of government.
