Abstract and key words of the research

My research focuses on innovative approaches to e-democracy, particularly with regards to alternative political systems. At present, I am developing a political science framework, and e-democracy model, for new approaches to direct democracy. I have written a computer science book on feedback systems “Modeling Integrated Socio-Technical Feedback Systems: E-Democracy and Other Applications”.
