Scottish + US = International

International Centre for e-Governance is a new project of the Scottish Council Foundation, an Edinburgh-based organisation that promotes independent thinking in public policy.

“Governance is not government, nor is it the act of governing. It is more usefully seen as a process: the process by which institutions, organisations, companies and societies ‘guide’ themselves. It is also about how these bodies interact with each other, with their ‘clients’ and with the public. At its most basic level, it is about how society organises itself for collective decision making, and also provides transparent mechanisms for seeing those decisions through.”
“E-governance is a shorthand term for the use and impact of technology, in particular information and communications technology (ICT), in governance systems. How must we adjust the theory and practice of legitimate decision making and policy formulation to meet the demands of a knowledge society?”
