Citizen participation is critical to the democratic process and the  
effective performance of e-Governmental services and systems. With the  
advent of e-Government, citizen participation also becomes critical in  
the conceptualization, planning, development, implementation,  
evaluation, and reflection phases of application development.  
Deliberative decisions and legislation are improved by the  
participation of citizens in the process.

As e-Government becomes more ubiquitous, questions arise about what it  
means to be an e-Citizen, how the concept of citizenship might be  
changing, and how participation in the democratic process and  
democratic/governmental institutions might be influenced.
