Electronic Government Track
E-Policy, Law, and Governance
E-Policy, Law, and Governance focuses on how the development, utilization, and expansion of information and communications technologies (ICT) are interrelated with creation and implementation of public policies and laws as well as how these technologies impact and influence governance systems. While ICT can offer means to increased efficiency and effectiveness, these technologies must be tempered by concerns of equity and access.

Public policy issues and their analysis pertain to
  • the digital divide,
  • ICT standards,
  • Diffusion and adoption of ICT, and
  • the role of ICT in public and health service administration.
  • E-polices and their analysis at the national level.
E-governance relates to
  • Legal and policy implications of inter-organizational and public-private sector systems for government service delivery and includes
    • Transparency,
    • Trust, and legitimacy concerns
    • issues of accountability, responsiveness, and authority.
