Policy issues and their analysis pertain to the digital divide, infrastructure development, open source, standards and educational uses of ICT. In addition, E-policies related to national development are covered in this minitrack. Governance refers to the system of directing and controlling the actions, affairs, policies and functions of a political unit, organization, or nation. E-governance is getting more attention, as it should ensure that the spending of public money to information and communication technology development, control and maintenance activities is done in a transparent, effective and efficient way. This should create a dynamic, creative public sector capable of anticipating on and being open, responsive, democratic and accountable.
