More than Digitisation - The Transformative Potential of E-Governance: An Exploratory Case Study

Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to present our
conceptualization of e-governance. With e-governance,
we mean the current shifts in the state’s governance
mechanisms that are induced by information and
communication technology (ICT) along the three major
functions of state, namely policy making (political
process), regulation and service delivery. In the paper,
we describe the current state of our work on the
Lausanne Framework, which serves as an evaluation
method for e-governance projects. By applying it to an
exploratory case study, we first want to demonstrate its
usefulness for the understanding of state
transformation. And second, we want to outline the
transformative potential of e-governance on the state’s
systems of rules and regulation.
