The Information Society & E-Government Research Center (ISEGOV-Research) is a non-profit institution devoted to research on network industries, electronic commerce, e-government, telecommunications, virtual private and public networks, analysing  the economic, political, and social dimensions of the digital society.

Research on Information Society and E-Government (ISEGOV) is a goal at the Institut of Government, Political Science and Comparative Social Science. Scope of the Center is to apply and extend the social and political science for research at the intersection of civil society, governance, institutions, and information technologies. We expect our joint research and network-building activities to catalyze research for the economic, social and political implications of ICT, focusing on transformative changes and long term consequences of growing rates of information emission and consumption as a result of participation in digital networks. 

The center's mission is to build global research capacity, to advance practice, and to strengthen the network of researchers and practitioners engaged in information society and digital government research, through the publication of our work, relationships with colleagues, guidance to graduate students and the stream of joint activities that are likely to emerge rapidly as spin-offs to those described here.
