Governance Overview

Overview of Information Modelling in Governance

Since access to information is intricately with notions of power - the governing and the governed - the categories and hierarchies underlying the system tend to consolidate or reconfigure equations of who has access to what information and by what mechanism.

Thus any changes in the concepts, categories, relationships, operations or constraints - or in other words, the informational model may imply a change in social relations and vice-versa.

The project engages with the information and process models underlying most modern systems of governance. It suggests mechanisms for local governance whereby the traditionally "governed" category may be more involved in governance.

Starting with a generalized model of governance, the project sees how the model realigns and gets shaped through interaction with various communities.
