Fadi Salem, Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, David Lazer, with Yasar Jarrar

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 "electronic government" on technology and transactions to the broader perspective of information government—the information flows within the public sector, between the public sector and citizens, and among citizens—as a way to understand the changing nature of governing and governance in today’s 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 Dubai, Singapore and Switzerland and the U.S.

Published by the Dubai School of Government, the Arabic edition includes further additions focusing on Arab countries. It is edited by Fadi Salem (Dubai School of Government), Viktor Mayer-Schönberger (Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy), David Lazer, (Harvard Kennedy School), with Yasar Jarrar (Dubai School of Government).
