e-Government is not only a supportive tool for public administrations, it’s rather a holistic paradigm of transformation and a valuable enabler of good governance principles. However,the transformative impact of e-Government cannot happen without a solid legislative framework. This course introduces participants to the legal barriers of successful e-Transformation of government authorities. Then, it highlights the importance of the development of a solid legislative framework for ICT and e-Government based transformation. The course discusses key elements of ICT related laws and policies within an overall regulatory context. Participants will study case studies from different nations and will engage with the trainer in drawing possible future scenarios for the information society and link those scenarios to existing ICT laws and regulations.

Because you might be facing some of these challenges today and you are thinking:

a) Whether existing laws/regulations can be applied or adapted to the regulation of ICT issues, or whether new laws/regulations are needed.

b) When law/regulation is needed, how to formulate a proportional and reasonable response.

c) How to craft laws/regulations that will be flexible enough to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances.

d) Facing technological and economical pressures, how to preserve fundamental human values.

e) From a global perspective, how to obtain a coherent legal environment through coordination with other nations in ICT laws and policies.


From the Government´s legal perspective:

1. To make people happy we have to create value and include them.

2. To create value we have to go beyond having only laws related to ICT.

3. We have to improve the quality of regulation towards better and responsive regulation (rules, laws, any other form or regulation).

4. Rule of law = standardized languages.

5. We can have excellent ICT and also laws directly related to it but if they are not fitting in coherence with the whole legal system then there is no trust and that is the real enemy because laws that are divorced with the reality generate more costs than benefits. Therefore, “legal system is a gateway to economic success” (Hernando de Soto).
