Albeit a late developer in high technology terms, a pattern arguably commensurate with Modern Greece's politico-economic position in the world today, the idea of grasping the nettle of technological advancements and applying it towards the recreation of a government-citizen relationship through an electronic forum reminiscent of the ancient Greek Pnyx or the Agora, has captured the imagination of the Greeks in the 21st century. This case study paper follows chronologically and examines critically alongside, the build-up of ventures towards establishing e-government and initiatives for e-democracy in Greece, their aims and scope, limitations and context, attempting a projection of future directions based on these early experiences and the lessons learnt.
