The Openness of Government
By user804106 on Nov 23, 2010
European Journal of ePractice has a Call for Papers on "The Openness of Government", which must be the sexiest e-government topic this Fall, given that The Belgian Presidency is also hosting a Conference in Brussels on December 15th-16th under the title "Lift-off towards Open Government".
Around the world, governments are attempting to respond to citizen, NGO and business pressure to open up, service, share, procure and collaborate in better, fairer, and more transparent, efficient ways. Why are some governments succeeding and others struggling? What are realistic expectations? How should stakeholders expect to be helping out? Where is the action right now? What analysis can we make of the ongoing efforts?
If you have answers to any of these, you should submit an article by Deadline for submissions: December 30, 2010.
The key question seems to be: what is an appropriate openness strategy for government? Topics could include:
- Open data and re-use
- Interoperability and Standard-setting:
- Transparency of government operations:
- Procurement of IT:
- Co-production of public services:
- Transformation and e-enabling of front-line government officials
- Public-private-partnerships in eGovernment, eHealth and eInclusion
Your submission could refocus the European debate on these questions and enable the European Digital Agenda to take on board your conclusions.
Please, send your papers to firstname.lastname@example.org
Article guidelines: Full texts of 2 000 - 6 000 words.
