  • Doing Business in Kenya 2012

    International Finance Corporation; World Bank (Washington, DC, 2013-05-14)
    Doing Business in Kenya 2012 is the second subnational report of the Doing Business series in Kenya. In 2009, Doing Business in Kenya 2010 analyzed quantitative indicators on business regulations for 11 cities: Eldoret, Garissa, Isiolo, Kilifi, Kisumu, Malaba, Mombasa, Nairobi, Narok, Nyeri, and Thika. This year, Doing Business in Kenya 2012 documents improvements in the 11 cities previously measured and expands the analysis to 2 new cities: Kakamega and Nakuru. The cities can be compared against each other, and with 183 economies worldwide. Doing Business investigates the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Regulations affecting 4 stages of the life of a business are measured at the subnational level in Kenya: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, registering property, and enforcing contracts. These indicators were selected because they cover areas of local jurisdiction or practice. The indicators are used to identify business reforms and the extent to which these have been effective in simplifying the procedures, saving time, and lowering the cost of doing business. The data in Doing Business in Kenya 2012 are current as of March 2012.

  • Spletno in mobilno nadlegovanje: pojem, oblike, posledice in soočanje s kazenskim pravom

    Završnik, Aleš (Pravna fakulteta, 2015-12-21)
    Prispevek prikaže kibernetsko nadlegovanje in njegove oblike, izvršene s pomočjo novih informacijsko-komunikacijskih tehnologij, primarno interneta in mobilnih telefonov. Na podlagi predstavljenih izsledkov o posledicah in nevarnosti kibernetskega nadlegovanja prikaže plejado možnih oblik soočanja, pri čemer se osredotoči na disciplinsko odgovornost učencev v okviru šole in na kazensko pravo. Pri tem predstavi lastnosti novega nadlegovanja, kot so anonimnost nadlegovalca, široka publika nadlegovanja in preseganje dotlejšnih prostorskih in časovnih meja viktimacij, ki kažejo, da kibernetsko nadlegovanje prinaša novo kriminalno količino. Prispevek zato predstavi možnosti kazenskega pregona po slovenski kazenski zakonodaji in predstavi nekatere možnosti njenih sprememb de lege ferenda.

    van der Waal, Victor; Vloeimans, Jeroen (AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), 2008-04-10)
    In order to improve service delivery and in order to achieve centrally formulated goals,Dutch local governments (municipalities) introduce innovative technologies in their organizations.The implementation of technology affects the organizations in several ways. The structuration modelof technology defines elements in the organization which are affected by technology. This model isused to determine the effect of e-government technology on e.g. human actors and organizationstructure. We use the e-government maturity model to define different stages of e-government. Thisenabled us to analyze the impact of e-government during different stages of e-governmentdevelopment in practice. This study can be helpful for e.g. managers of e-government projects as theseprojects are often described to be unmanageable and complex, and this paper gives insight in the effectof e-government on the organization.
