Modern information systems provide a technical foundation for greater participation of citizens in the agenda-setting and decision-making processes of government. Information systems researchers and designers will need to address a number of issues to design IS applications for the effective functioning of evolving forms of democracy. This paper identifies a research agenda at the intersection of information systems research, economics and political science research and avenues for information systems researchers to contribute to the research agenda.
