E-Participation in the Governance Process: Redefining its Worth and Modality

CeDEM Asia 2016
The Philippines was selected as a research site based on its aggressive push to improve information and communication technologies and infrastructure, e-Government, and most notably e-Participation.

The capability approach was used as a foundation to evaluate the social arrangements, not just the opportunities affecting citizens' decisions to participate in e-Governance. The approach provides the basis for the conceptualization of inclusive democracy, where the individual has the freedom to develop the necessary capability to be able to choose between different opportunities (Sen, 2009)
Core set of capabilities which have an influence on citizens' ability to find value in participating in the governance process
Being able to access modern ICTs; utilize public services; and have low barriers to entry
Being able to speak freely; have the technical literacy to participate in the governance process; and, voice an opinion without the fear of retribution
Being able to access the same information as everyone else; have equal opportunities to access services; and, be free of discriminatory behaviors
Knowledge Acquisition
Being able to access relevant information; information that has not been manipulated; and, through a medium that is understandable
Being able to interact socially and have the freedom to assemble
Research was conducted using a mixed method approach. Priority was given to the qualitative data utilizing a sequential exploratory strategy.

Conducted interviews with key government officials, citizens and experts in the field

Carried out 466 Questionnaire/Surveys
144 hours of interviews

Held 6 Roundtable Discussions
University of the Philippines Diliman (3 workshops)
Ateneo de Manila University (3 workshops)

An ethnographic approach was used in the field to observe traditional interaction between citizens and government actors as well as to evaluate the role that ICTs play in the governance process.

This included the daily monitoring of 3 local politicians' Facebook accounts
Over a three year period, 3,918 posts as well as 19,998 comments were reviewed and documented

A semi-inductive research approach is being taken to validate the capability set and theoretical model.
Foundation of the Capabilities Approach
The focus of my research is on identifying the core set of 'normative' capabilities necessary for promoting E-Participation in the Governance Process
