Yet, I found this book to be her most interesting piece of writing. It is experimental in form and successfully mixes stories of real-world change processes, with auto-biographical reflection and conceptual analysis in a way which really made me think. The book is an erudite and passionate articulation of pathways to action at a time when the world urgently needs to nurture the “proliferating micro worlds” that she describes.’ – Danny Burns, The University of Sussex, UK June 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 304 4 £90.00 / $130.00 eBook • Elgaronline How to Research Guides Artificial Intelligence and Democracy Risks and Promises of AI-Mediated Citizen-Government Relations Jérôme Duberry, University of Geneva and Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Switzerland This insightful book explores the citizengovernment relation, as mediated through artificial intelligence (AI).
