In spite of the technological, economic, and normative efforts, all democratic countries are developing electronic filing (e-filing) in the justice sector, but only a few of them have operational systems. This chapter tries to give a solution to this situation in light of risk management theories. Different strategic approaches to policies for risk management have been adopted by institutions governing ICT technologies in the development of the judicial electronic data interchange (JEDI). As the author shows with the support of the information provided by several case studies, such approaches are correlated to the (positive and negative) results achieved by the different countries in terms of successful implementation and diffusion of e-justice. In the concluding remarks and future trends sections, the author will provide indications to support the development of ICT strategies in this area.
