New technologies lead public organizations to sustain public trust, promote public interest and behave as responsive institutions fostering citizenship and collaboration in order to uphold values of representative democracy in front of an increasing disenchantment of citizens for traditional representative and democratic institutions facing the challenge of dealing with a mixed polity embracing elements of representative and direct democracy. Technologies are driving public institutions to sustain a participatory democracy and leading citizens to act as active co-producers of social, democratic and public value.
