Jamal is a senior research fellow and co-founder of the UIS, based at the International Institute of Infonomics,
in the South of the Netherlands. He is leading a research strand at the
European Centre for Digital Communication on government and governance.
He also is an external instructor at the International School of Humanities
and Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam. His primary interests
lie in the impact of the Internet (and the Information Society) on international
relations, and how it affects the role of the state. Within this broad
area, Jamal has chosen to focus on creating a framework for analysis of
the role of the state in the Information Age, by looking at the interplay
between democratic participation and ICTs. More information, including
recent papers and presentations can be found on his personal homepage.
