In this book, we analyze the implications of new technologies, in Public Administration. In this context, we assess the e-government and e-participation strategies at local, regional and national levels within Europe, being the local case studies the partners of the Interreg E-Prodat project.Specially, we take in account the data protection aspects, this a key point in the e-government and e-participation systems. Relevant information was extracted by simple statistical analysis, with which we create several technological indexes to evaluate how ready are European Administrations to this new phenomenon.
Comparative E-Government examines the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on governments throughout the world. It focuses on the adoption of e-government both by comparing different countries, and by focusing on individual countries and the success and challenges that they have faced. With 32 chapters from leading e-government scholars and practitioners from around the world, there is representation of developing and developed countries and their different stages of e-government adoption. Part I compares the adoption of e-government in two or more countries. The purpose of these chapters is to discern the development of e-government by comparing different counties and their individual experiences. Part II provides a more in-depth focus on case studies of e-government adoption in select countries. Part III, the last part of the book, examines emerging innovations and technologies in the adoption of e-government in different countries. Some of the emerging technologies are the new social media movement, the development of e-participation, interoperability, and geographic information systems (GIS).
Provides research on e-government and its implications within the global context. Covers topics such as digital government, electronic justice, government-to-government, information policy, and cyber-infrastructure research and methodologies.

This review is the first study that undertakes an in-depth analysis of e-government in Norway from a whole-of-government perspective. It looks at progress to date and the remaining challenges Norway faces in implementing e-government.
The EGOV Conference Series intends to assess the state of the art in e-Gove- ment and to provide guidance for research and development in this fast-moving ?eld. The annual conferences bring together leading research experts and p- fessionals from all over the globe. Thus, EGOV 2003 in Prague built on the achievements of the 1st EGOV Conference (Aix-en-Provence, 2002), which p- vided an illustrative overview of e-Government activities. This year the interest even increased: nearly 100 contributions, and authors coming from 34 countries. In this way EGOV Conference 2003 was a reunion for professionals from all over the globe. EGOV 2003 brought some changes in the outline and structure of the c- ference. In line with the broadening of the ?eld and a growing number of s- missions it became necessary to decentralize the reviewing process. So reviewing was done via stream chairs who deserve high praise for their dedicated work. In addition, a workshop part was included to cover some subjects of emerging signi?cance, such as dissemination, networking, and regional developments. F- ther, a subtitle of the conference was chosen that would mirror the expansion of e-Government to e-Governance. Consequently, in this year’s conference gov- nance, democratic deliberation and legal issues occupied a growing share. Last, but not least, GIS was incorporated as a topic due to the increasing importance of geographical information systems for planning and operations.
The first in a series of national e-government reviews, this book uses a common analytical framework that will assist countries in evaluating their e-government policies, ensure international comparability of findings and systematically build up evidence regarding good e-government practices.
This comprehensive review of e-government in the Netherlands examines such questions as whether the goal of reducing administrative burdens is sufficient in itself for e-government to transform public administrations. Further, how can the public sector build partnerships across levels of government?
Explains the challenges that governments face and how various factors play a role before we can even begin to speak of successful transferral to e-government. Presenting a multi-disciplinary approach, this book analyses a range of challenges spanning from those of a technological and managerial nature to those of political and legal nature.
This report shows that the development and provision of the next generation of user-focused services in the Belgian government will require the maximisation of synergies between the federal, regional and community governments and local authorities.
