IJPADA 2017 : Special Issue on Organisational Architecture Beyond E-Government
Call For Papers
Organizational architecture is the area of study concerned with the optimal way to design an organization to achieve its aims. Much research relating to politics and policy in the digital age with respect to organizational architecture has focused on e-government in terms of making government functions available to the public via the Internet. However, the reform needed to government bodies in order to cope with the new challenges in the digital age, such as from cyber-crime, cyber-terrorism and cyber-warfare are often overlooked when information strategies are put together.
The aim of this special issue is to look at the how the organizational architecture of government organisations need to change to cope with the new threats that exist in the digital age, which were not envisaged when e-government as a concept was defined. The importance of government departments sharing data is becoming more evident, as is the situation where the provision of government security services, such as policing and other law enforcement, at a local rather than national level is proving in effective in dealing with cyber-crime, where the criminals are unlikely to be in the same locality as their victim. This special issue will therefore look at the changes that can be made to the organizational architectures of public authorities to respond to the problems that have come into existence in the digital age.
