world has advanced alongside technology. For example, mechanisms for
communications have become more rapid, inexpensive, and accurate. With these
advances in mind, we must note that the same stands true for government.
Through the advances of technology, our government has become more efficient,
productive, and accessible. The terminology associated with the phenomenon of
adapting technological advantages to our government is known as digital governance.
Political Science scholars have correlated the development of democracy and
citizen credibility with the adoption of digital governance. Furthermore, the
United Nations created a system to measure and score a country’s ability to
adopt digital governance and increase citizenship participation. This system is
then utilized as a measure for democratization; however, is this truly
accurate? Skeptics of the system argue that the United Nation’s index simply
measures the advances of a country without taking into account any stops or
challenges. Or is it just a system that measures the overall advances of a
country? My
research paper will focus on exploring the possibility that the United Nation’s
index is not an appropriate measure for democracy as it is skewed. It is
important to note that my paper is limited on overall data and not country
specific data. Therefore, preventing me from analyzing my topic on a microscope
level. Additionally, the research will be limited to the United Nation’s index,
which is simply one of methods used to measure digital governance interaction. Sources Choong-sik Chung (2020)
