Abstract/Summary

There is a growing gap between societies and the government as citizens deem that they and their interests are no longer represented in political processes. Nonetheless, new ICTs provide more opportunities for government-to-citizen interaction, resulting to developments in e-participation. E-participation is an emerging field that opens up a wide array of research opportunities in the Philippine government, one of which is in the area of collaboration. Collaborative activities exist in the legislative process of the Philippine Senate, which requires the exchange of information among committee members, citizens, and civil society organizations. By studying current e-participation models, theories on participatory governance, and ICT tools, this ongoing research project involves the creation of a framework for legislative collaboration that may be adopted particularly by the Philippine Senate and its Blue Ribbon Committee.
