Chapter Proposal Submission Deadline: 25 Aug 2012 (extended)
Full Chapter Submission Deadline: 15 Oct 2012


E-Government is about harnessing the information revolution to improve the lives of citizens and businesses, and to improve the efficiency of the government. It aims at a citizen-centred vision of a government that provides effective governance, increased transparency, better management, effective processes, and efficient services through the use of the Internet and information and communication technologies (ICTs). In this context, world governments are mobilizing large amounts of resources to develop, implement, and promote the use of e-government. However, developing e-government projects are huge undertakings that require significant investment of time, money, people, and technology resources. There is, therefore, a need for a careful assessment of the e-readiness of the state, as well as a careful formulation of a long term strategy and a clear commitment and will on the part of the political leaders. The governments need to have ICT infrastructure, processes, and policies as well as training provisions for the masses in place, and citizens must be willing to adopt the innovative technologies and approaches. The aim of the proposed book is to present frameworks and methodologies, as well as case studies to discuss and understand the approaches being deployed for successful implementation of e-government projects. The secondary objective is to present information for other economies that are in the process of developing e-government strategies.

Aim and Objectives

The aim of the proposed text is to present frameworks and methodologies for understanding what courses of actions and best practices would provide successful strategies towards design, implementation, and adoption of e-government projects. The objectives are:

• To advance the understanding and extend the body of knowledge with respect to e-government adoption
• To discuss frameworks, policies, and strategies for successful implementation of such projects
• To look into innovative practices and diffusion of innovation approaches for successful adoption
• To discuss the inherent issues, limitations, and barriers to e-government development
• To explore the effects of cultural and local factors on successful adoption of e-government
• To share best practices and recommendations based on case studies from successful e-government projects
• To present case studies highlighting practical experiences of those involved in e-government development.
