The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Agenda Council (GAC) on the Future of Government, in cooperation and with the support of the Government of the United Arab Emirates, has launched a guide to help governments use technology to build better trust and deliver more efficient public services.

Jane Foutain, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Public Policy and member of the WEF GAC authored the section of the report on "political representation," one of the core issues for technology and governance globally. Professor Fountain has been a member of the Future of Government Global Agenda Council since its inception seven years ago. She is past-chair of the Council and led the writing of its first major report, The Future of Government: Lessons Learned from around the World, which led to the initial sessions at Davos for government and NGO leaders on this topic.
