E-Government, or electronic government, is about harnessing the information revolution to improve the efficiency of government processes and the lives of citizens. It aims at a citizen centred approach to governance through effective use of the Internet and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). E-Government promotes transparency and effectiveness of a government’s processes as well as citizens’ participation (e-participation) in the affairs of the government. Whereas, E-government projects are huge undertakings for government departments, user-centric approach requires citizens’ participation in the running of the government affairs. In both these respects, there are huge challenges and inherent issues. Whereas, governments require long term commitment as well as correct planning and availability of financial resources, it is highly important that citizens are enabled to have access to the information technology, have knowledge and skills to use the available technology, have the positive commitment to affect the governments’ strategies. So, enabling citizens to effectively participate is much more difficult.
In this context, in the proposed book, we aim to present the inherent challenges and available opportunities with respect to user-centric e-government.
