This special issue aims to examine e-Governance developments in the vast
Eurasian region that includes primarily the former communist countries
of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). While a broad range of
e-Governance issues will constitute the contents of the issue, its main
emphasis is placed on Open Governance; that is to say, how new digital
media can – or cannot for that matter – help making the post-communist
public governance not just effective and efficient under the traditional
e-Government paradigm, but also open, transparent and accountable as the
citizen-centric e-Democracy concept suggests. Since, in academic terms,
not much research from the Eurasian region has been published in
English, a major objective is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from other regions as well so as to make informed and
grounded comparisons of the state of play, the currently prevailing
trends and future prospects to better understand the complex
relationship between Electronic Governance and Open Society.

Subject Coverage
The special issue welcomes literature and academic discourse based
position papers, research articles and field-level case studies
investigating electronic governance and open society challenges in
Eurasia, especially the relationship between efficiency and openness in
general and the post-communist context in particular.
Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to, the
following, with a focus on the Eurasian area context:
• Information Society and E-Governance Policies
• Open Government Prospects
• Convergence in E-Governance Services
• Citizen-Centric E-Government
• Participatory e-Governance
• Open Data
• E-Governance and Policy Modelling
• E-Governance and Eurasian Integration
