Policies and Strategies for Digital Government Minitrack

This minitrack offers a multidisciplinary forum to present cases and discuss theories associated with the design, management and evaluation of the policies and strategies deployed to support, facilitate and promote digital government. The HICSS minitrack on Policies and Strategies for Digital Government invites submissions that contribute to the analysis of the challenges faced by governments when formulating e-government policies. Specifically the minitrack focuses on the effects of ICT implementations which are designed to transform government organisations, public sector management and the functioning of public institutions in general. We invite and encourage the submission of case studies which demonstrate best practices in the design, management and evaluation of e-government policies and strategies. In addition to intra government policies, the minitrack welcomes contributions exploring the issues associated with the design and deployment of policies and strategies that change the nature of the interactions between government and citizens, private sector organisations and NGOs.

Minitrack topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Policy and governance challenges arising from the adoption of ICTs in public administration at the local, state, and national level;
  • Public Service co-creation and co-production;
  • e-Democracy and e-Participation;
