Developments in information and communication technology and networked computing over the past two decades have given rise to the notion of electronic government, most commonly used to refer to the delivery of public services over the Internet. This volume argues for a shift from the narrow focus of qelectronic governmentq on technology and transactions to the broader perspective of information governmenta€”the information flows within the public sector, between the public sector and citizens, and among citizensa€”as a way to understand the changing nature of governing and governance in an information society. Contributors discuss the interplay between recent technological developments and evolving information flows, and the implications of different information flows for efficiency, political mobilization, and democratic accountability. The chapters are accompanied by short case studies from around the world, which cover such topics as electronic government efforts in Singapore and Switzerland, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencya€™s effort to solicit input on planned regulations over the Internet, and online activism qcyberprotestingq globalization.
