Learning from the Experience. Systemic Thinking for e-Government Development in Developing Countries: A Question Unsolved
e-Government has become one of the most important issues on political agendas today, and is a concept which seems to be constantly developing. Most e-Government research has focused on developed countries, neglecting the area of emerging economies. Nonetheless, this analysis is of particular importance in developing countries because prior research has indicated that e-government constitutes a central element in the process of modernising public administrations. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to analyse past experiences in the implementation of e-government in developing countries to learn some lessons for improving this implementation in the future, which could help to achieve more transparent, participative and democratic societies.
