EGOV-CeDEM-ePART 2018: Keynote Wolfgang Drechsler

Look further than the western public administration.
“Estonia has turned its government into a website” – but this is not true. EE is not a world leader, it is doing very well, but it is not number 1. Important from drawing lessons.

Number one is part of the malayian peninsula (Singapore)
Why does Estonia oversell? The push-pull factors, not only what you are saying, but what people want to hear.

EGOV-CeDEM-ePART 2018: Keynote Bill Dutton

Bill Dutton starts with the story by Martha Payne, a 9-year old changed food policy in British schools – internet can impact institutions.

The role of the internet is always changing, at the moment the Internet is seen as empowering institutions. It is not technological determination but it does help change – e.g. access to information. It is about reconfiguring access to information, people, services and technology; it is a power shift.

Bill considers the constantly changing role of the internet, that at the moment is seen as empowering institutions. Whilst we should not see it as technological determination, the internet does help change – e.g. by providing access to information. It is about reconfiguring access to information, people, services and technology; it is a power shift.

He presents the known 4 estates, clergy (experts, public intellectuals), nobility (business, industry, and internet industrial elites), commons (government), press, mob (civil society, networked individuals); he adds the fifth, which includes bloggers, whistle-blowers and other individuals that improve government and governance – reshaping and improving the institutions. Not every internet user is the 5th estate – it is those users who use the internet “strategically”,– often younger, urban, and from a minority.
