Building a Community of Practice for Electronic Governance
Janowski, T. (Tomasz) (2013-05)
The aim of this course is to introduce the UNeGov.net initiative. The main objective of UNeGov.net is to build a Community of Practice for developing, sharing, and applying concrete solutions for Electronic Governance, with particular focus on developing countries. UNeGov.net will bring together experts and practitioners from government, academia, industry and civil society in a variety of areas related to Electronic Governance: Public Administration, Information Technology, Knowledge Management, Sociology, Economics and others. To support the community, UNeGov.net will provide an advanced semantic web portal, establish a series of network-building workshops and organize annually a conference on the Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance. The emphasis is as much on solving concrete problems as it is on establishing best practices in the field. The course will describe the rationale, objectives, activities and future directions of UNeGov.net.
