The E-Policy, Law, and Governance Minitrack focuses our attention on how the development, utilization, and expansion of information and communication technologies (ICT) are intertwined and interdependent with the creation and implementation of public policies and laws. It is also concerned with how these technologies impact and influence governance systems. While ICT can offer a potential means for increased efficiencies and effectiveness, these same technologies may need to be tempered by analysis concerning their equity and access issues. E-policies and their analysis at the national level are included in this minitrack. E-governance relates to the legal and policy implications of inter-organizational and public-private sector systems for the delivery of government services and the increased presence of NGOs and includes issues of trust, transparency, and legitimacy.
