Summary "E-government applications enable interaction amongst government departments, citizens, and businesses. Benefits of e-government include encouraging social inclusion (citizens are able to participate in various socio-economic activities such as decision-making), e-participation (facilitate e-democracy/e-voting), enacting effectiveness of public service delivery by allowing seamless integration of government departments and so forth. Understanding the context in which e-government applications should be implemented is critical to e-government success. The Handbook of Research on E-Government in Emerging Economies: Adoption, E -Participation, and Legal Frameworks is a collection of knowledge on contemporary experiences on technological, societal, and legal setups of e-government implementation in emerging economies. The book is composed of professionals and researchers working in the field of e-government and information/knowledge management in various disciplines and establishments"--Provided by publisher
