I am an expert on collaborative governance. Pervasive information and
communication technologies, together with the societal changes they have
been associated with, enable public policy and even public services to
be collaboratively produced. I have firsthand experience in
establishing, nurturing and running communities of citizens that work
with government towards public goals. I work mainly for the Italian
Ministry of economic development and the Council of Europe, but I also
have regional and local level experience. I am interested in complexity
economics as a framework to think about these things; to get my thinking
deeper and more rigorous, I am doing research in this area, as a Ph.D.
student at Alicante University. I am the author of a book on the wiki government, many journal articles and a blog, and I try my best to be reader-friendly while not watering down the arguments.
