Abstract [en]

Many countries are moving towards eGovernment for ensuring higher efficiency, transparency and accountability in the public administration. Accountability, the obligation to justify one’s conduct, has been widely discussed in the social, public and political spheres. However, it is not so well understood how and to what extent Government’s accountability is affected with the transformation to eGovernment. This paper focuses on this aspect by means of literature review and analyzing indexes related to eGovernment and the factors associated with accountability available during the period 2005 -2010. The findings show that the relationship between accountability and eGovernment among the countries as whole is not straightforward as it depends on the characteristics of the individual governance. However, evidence in general shows that strong accountability, which is measured here through a level of integrity, influences the government to adopt eGovernment as it helps to open up the government and its policy process to its citizens and other stakeholders.
