E- Integrity: digital Communication in e-democracy
In the rapidly changing world of today, it is strongly recommended that governments keep up with trends and that they develop up-to-date policies for the constructive use of information and communication technology (ICT) platforms. These policies should be informed by the needs of their citizens and aligned with the prescripts and universal values entrenched in international law.
