  • Can the Internet Forget? – Rhe Eight to be Forgotten in the EU Law and its Actual Impact on the Internet. Comparison of the Approaches Towards the Notion and Assessment of its Effectiveness

    Gebuza Aleksandra (Sciendo, 2020-06-01)
    The main aim of the article is to provide analysis on the notion of the right to be forgotten developed by the CJEU in the ruling Google v. AEPD & Gonzalez and by the General Data Protection Regulation within the context of the processing of personal data on the Internet. The analysis provides the comparison of approach towards the notion between European and American jurisprudence and doctrine, in order to demonstrate the scale of difficulty in applying the concept in practice.
  • How is e-government progressing? A data driven approach to e-government monitoring

    Stragier, Jeroen; Verdegem, Pieter; Verleye, Gino (GRAZ UNIV TECHNOLGOY, INST INFORMATION SYSTEMS COMPUTER MED, 2010)
    As ICT provide a lot of possibilities, high expectancies exist towards the electronic public service provision. All governments are increasingly establishing their e-strategies. Nevertheless, both in research as among practitioners, some questions are formulated towards the current approaches. E-government policy has to deal with two main challenges: how to offer new and better services for the same (or lower) budget and how to increase user uptake? The challenges relate to both the efficiency of e-government, as its effectiveness. In order to further develop e-government strategies, governments need a thorough knowledge base to (a) to evaluate their current ways of working and (b) to found their activities of the future. In this paper we consider trends in e-government measurement and we discuss ongoing research towards the development of an e-government monitor for the Belgian government. This monitor will consist of different types of information from various sources, providing the necessary knowledge for all stakeholders involved to underpin their current and future e-strategies.
  • Critical steps towards e-Governance: a case study analysis

    Zwahr, Thomas; Finger, Matthias (2004)
    The purpose of this paper is to make a further contribution to the theory and to the understanding of e-Governance. In doing so, the paper proceeds by an in-depth analysis of three cases, which, we think, are particularly illustrative of the three main dimensions – i.e., e-Service-Delivery, e-Regulation and e-Policy-Making – of evolving e-Governance practice and theory. By analysing the cases from a comprehensive theoretical framework, we will show how information and communication technology (ICT) impacts the transformation of the State.

  • Where do e-Government strategies take the Nordic nations?

    Joseph, Shaji; Avdic, Anders (Högskolan Dalarna, InformatikÖrebro universitet, 2016)
    An effective strategy is critical for the successful development of e-Government. The leading nations in the e-Government rankings include Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. Their leading role makes them interesting to study when looking for reasons to successful e-Government. The purpose of this research paper is to describe the e-Government development strategies of Nordic countries, which rank highly on the international stage. In particular it aims to study the foci of these strategies. The approach is a document study of the e-Government development strategies of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland was carried out using a qualitative content analysis inductive method. The results show that the major focus of Nordic e-Government strategies is on public sector reforms. Other focus areas include economic reforms and, to a lesser extent, e-Democracy efforts. Sweden, Finland and Norway have set ambitious policy goals in order to achieve global leadership in e-Government development. In response to the question posed by this paper’s title, we can say that Nordic e-Government strategies, except for Norway, focus more on reforming public sector services than on economic reforms.  E-Democracy reforms are hardly focused on at all. Practical implications: Public sector policy makers can relate their policy foci to some of the more successful e-Government countries in the world. Research implications/originality is that this paper can apart from the findings also provide a means on how to identify the actual foci of a country’s e-Government policy.
