Description & Coverage
Description:

E-government applications enable interaction amongst government departments, citizens, and businesses. Benefits of e-government include encouraging social inclusion (citizens are able to participate in various socio-economic activities such as decision-making), e-participation (facilitate e-democracy/e-voting), enacting effectiveness of public service delivery by allowing seamless integration of government departments and so forth. Understanding the context in which e-government applications should be implemented is critical to e-government success.

The Handbook of Research on E-Government in Emerging Economies: Adoption, E -Participation, and Legal Frameworks is a collection of knowledge on contemporary experiences on technological, societal, and legal setups of e-government implementation in emerging economies. The book is composed of professionals and researchers working in the field of e-government and information/knowledge management in various disciplines and establishments.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Broader context of telecom and ICT policy and linkage to e-Government implementation.
  • E-Government adoption metrics
  • E-Participation (e-Democracy/e-Voting) and social inclusion in the context of e-Government
  • Empirical case studies of implementing e-Government initiatives in resource constrained economies
  • Empirical evaluation of e-Government adoption models
  • Establishment of e-Government institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks
  • Laws on access to government information and services with regards to e-Government
  • Marketing the e-Government phenomenon
  • Monitoring, evaluation, and cost-benefit analysis of e-Government interventions.
  • National e-Government strategy: design and implementation
  • Seamless integration of public services
  • User identity and authentication in the e-Government environment
Reviews & Statements

With the aforementioned topics, the editors believe this book addresses a topical subject that should, preferably, reach all corners of the world, with a view of sharing experiences in e-Government implementation and outlining the fundamental factors that affect reliable and sustainable e-Government development in developing countries. They believe the discussions offered in this book will go a long way in informing policy and practice of e-Government development in the context of developing or emerging countries.
