E–government readiness association with human rights index

E–government readiness association with human rights index Electronic government is considered a vital tool for the future of good governance, better public services, and effective participation. It is important to explore the factors that are associated with the success of such phenomenon. This paper tried to utilise secondary data related to human rights as a factor associated with e–government readiness. The literature indicated the absence of tautology but indirectly indicated an expected association between e–government readiness and human rights level of adherence. The objective of the paper is to add to the body of knowledge a new factor that can predict the state of e–government readiness. The study utilised two human rights indices and the UN E–Government Readiness Index and yielded significant results on both tests. Results indicated a significant association between E–Government Readiness Index (EGRI2005&2010) and human right indices (GloHRI or CIRI–HRD–PHYSINT). Conclusions, limitations and future work are stated at the end. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Electronic Government, an International Journal Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

Electronic government is considered a vital tool for the future of good governance, better public services, and effective participation. It is important to explore the factors that are associated with the success of such phenomenon. This paper tried to utilise secondary data related to human rights as a factor associated with e–government readiness. The literature indicated the absence of tautology but indirectly indicated an expected association between e–government readiness and human rights level of adherence. The objective of the paper is to add to the body of knowledge a new factor that can predict the state of e–government readiness. The study utilised two human rights indices and the UN E–Government Readiness Index and yielded significant results on both tests. Results indicated a significant association between E–Government Readiness Index (EGRI2005&2010) and human right indices (GloHRI or CIRI–HRD–PHYSINT). Conclusions, limitations and future work are stated at the end.
