Abstract [en]

In this article we will discuss how citizenship emerges in Swedish IT-policies and IT-related projects. In order to understand the basis of agency in a Nordic welfare society, like Sweden, using IT both as a means and goal there is a need to study how the Swedish government has defined and framed the space and borders of citizenship. The policies will be confronted with the enactment of agencies in the stories of citizens’ own design of IT in their everyday lives. We will discuss also how the societal changes connected to new technologies intervene and get intertwined in the everyday work of employees in the public sector. We will present some examples from our ongoing research project »From government to e-government : gender, skills, learning and technology« exploring the boundary crossings between IT and government. We will close the article by asking what the challenging and troublesome questions for the future digital society might and should be.
