Abstract

Today, participation is often emphasized as an instrument for solving democratic deficit and low public trust in institutions that gained the power to regulate the life of a society. Attempts to increase the legitimacy of their purposes and goals are clearly visible. Ideas of ICT use for improving quality of government have been discussed and translated into practice intensively.
