Description - National Electronic Government by Martin Eifert
National Electronic Government Advances in information and communication technologies have made a significant contribution to the modernisation of public administration. Governments all over the world vie to achieve ambitious targets and commission countless surveys to measure their success. Now, having solved most technical problems, joining-up fragmented administrations becomes the crucial task of user-friendly advanced e-government. This book is one of two volumes presenting a comparative study to evaluate the success of the implementation of e-government in the UK, US, France, Germany, Finland, Australia and Japan. This particular volume examines national strategies and their institutional framework of coordination and cooperation by focusing on the relevant players, the interplay of administrative levels and the types of control used by them. It focuses especially on the approaches to co-ordination and co-operation that enable cross-jurisdictional applications in federal and non-federal states and highlights emerging patterns by comparing the national approaches.
Drawing on literature on comparative public administration and comparative law this book makes an important contribution to our understanding of advanced e-government. It will interest students and researchers of electronic government and public administration in general.
