Abstract:

Prior studies have found that politically interested citizens use IT to facilitate and sometimes even augment their political participation. In the areas of political expression and civic engagement support, community groups’ IT capacity plays important roles for communication and information sharing. In terms of levels of analysis, these two have different levels emphasis—individual citizens’ level or community group level. In this research, the authors present what citizens are doing with IT in their own local groups. In addition, we seeks to combines both epistemologies, ranging from a model of multilevel analysis to an interpretive study based on storytelling. It seeks to build on the strengths of both quantitative and interpretive approaches in order to be able to explain the phenomenon as a whole. The purpose of interpretive study is to explore whether main community process theorist, Mary Parker Follett, may illuminate the understanding of community process from a non-traditional ontological and methodological approach in the relations of IT and political participation. A more sound understanding of the impact of IT on political participation at hand seems to be complemented by people’s own stories of lived experiences.
