GRSR seeks papers for a special issue to consider the challenges within the current ever-changing dynamic political and digital environment. There has been a substantial number of theoretical and empirical research over the past few years, on the nature of political behavior with respect to the increased use of the internet. The main aim of this special edition will be to explore the “digitization” of politics and what it may mean for contemporary democratic culture. We are especially interested in the following general topics:

-Political culture and the net
-E-democracy
-Social media and political participation
-New inequalities and digital society divisions
-Civil society, social movements and political use of the net
-Theoretical issues on the prospect of digital democracy
