Are the state institutions in the Republic of Macedonia using the potential of the new technologies to include the citizens in the decision-making processes? This is the subject of the public policy paper to be presented by the Metamorphosis Foundation at the conference taking place on June 17, 2014 (Tuesday) at 11.00am at the EU InfoCentre in Skopje.
The aim of the public policy paper “Increasing the use of gov.mk websites as tools for transparency, accountability and e-participation” is to examine the current level of use of new technologies by the central and local authorities in the Republic of Macedonia (.gov.mk) i.e. the opportunities offered for citizens to consult with or impact the work of the state institutions via the internet.
