New terms for closely observing Local Politics

There is a vision, rendered slightly simplified here, about a growing and evolving participating and/or deliberative democracy that connects to the visions about the New Media, especially Internet ́s potential, at least in Western Europe, on the local, national, global and glocal level. The vision is held or expressed by researchers, by politicians on the local, national and international level, by journalists and by citizens as well as by citizens organized in social movements and communities. The starting-point of my PhD project is the Swedish local governmental level, more precisely four medium size towns in the very south district of Sweden (Skåne).
