Smart Cities & STS

We note that the number of sophisticated analyses of smart cities as socio-technical systems is limited. There is a need for insights from e-governance studies and STS theories that highlight the complex interactions between technology and social systems – Meijer & Bolivár (2013, p. 4)

That’s exactly what my thesis is about: The role of different actor groups in smart city development, or: analysing specific smart city developments from an STS perspective
