Collaborative, Global, Digital Research
The Global Digital Governance Lab is an exciting new initiative supported by the School of Public Administration and the College of Public Affairs and Community Service. Digital governance is about the use of information and communication technologies for governance of public affairs and delivery of public information and services. With a strong base in local and international collaborations, our team aims to advance research in digital governance.
To develop innovative theory and practice to advance good digital governance globally.
Our Research Areas
The Lab focuses on the use of information and communication technologies in public governance and public services. We have broad research areas that include but are not limited to: smart city and collaborative governance, social media adoption and e-participation, and big data/open government. Some areas of interest include governance structure and process, performance evaluation, social media and effects in public sectors, citizen participation, big data analysis, and open data. Within each research concentration, the GDG fellows contribute to conduct the comparative and international studies, form partnerships with organizations and host workshops and conferences to disseminate our knowledge globally.
