Att åstadkomma e-government i praktiken. Samarbete kring utveckling av tjänster, medborgarskap och teknik i vardagen. (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In a joint research project concerning the use and design of IT in public services, we are using a simple figure of on-going, design-oriented interactions to highlight shifting foci on relationships of codevelopment of services, citzenship and technology. We bring together a number of concrete examples of this on-going everyday co-development, presented from the different perspectives that we, as researchers from different disciplines and traditions, represent in the project. The article explores and discusses wokring relations of technology production and use that we see as central to what is actually making e-government happen - or not happen. The main challenge in this area, as we see it, concerns making visible, and developing supportive infrastructures for, the continuing local adaptation, development and design in use of integrated IT and public services.

Abstract [sv]

I det mång- och tvärvetenskapliga samarbetet kring ett forskningsprojekt om användning och design av IT i offentlig förvaltning, har vi använt oss av en enkel tankefigur för att lyfta fram designorienterad interaktion kring IT i användning och tydliggöra våra olika perspektiv på samband och relationer mellan tjänsteutveckling, medborgarskap och teknik.
