Electronic democracy and its features are slowly starting to be adopted in various countries and organisations across the world, as its practical advantages are gradually being recognised and concerns about security are being dealt with. Meanwhile, social enterprises are rising as a strong alternative against the purely private economy, and for this type of enterprises, democracy is in the core of their governance process. However, the links between these two topics remain unexplored. The current research investigated the use of e-democracy applications by Greek social enterprises, as well as the opinions of their members regarding the value of e-democracy. The results show relatively small adoption rate, but wide interest in merging e-democracy procedures in their daily activities.
