Government and Political Information

Using information and communication technologies characterizes many governmental bodies, such as government ministries, agencies, and local authorities. They use these means to provide citizens with regular access to information and create online channels to communicate with the people and collect data and information. In addition, political entities such as members of parliament, party leaders, and heads of state, make extensive use of these means, especially in social media, to create their political positioning, recruit supporters, and mobilize voters.

The research in this field seeks to examine the information, content, and action patterns of various political entities, their messages, information strategies, and new technology usage.
