The information society (IS), which nowadays is the emerging form of the organization of advanced societies (see e.g., Castells, 1996; May, 2002; Zacher, 2000a, 2000b), is governed more and more by the use of electronic devices and systems. That is why the concept of e-government was introduced and practically implemented. (For a historical perspective, see the article on Historical Perspective of E-Government).
