The Foundation for Media Alternatives (FMA) is set to hold a panel discussion on Evolving an eGovernance Index for Networked Societies on 27th of July 2017 at the Main Conference of Mahitaladhibesra Building, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.
The panel discussion will present the results of a recent study done by FMA on Evolving an eGovernance Index for Networked Societies and the proposed index of measuring an ‘open’ eGovernance based on the following dimensions: meshed eGovernment; e-participation; digital inclusion; use of ICTs by civil society; enabling environment. At the same time, the state of eGovernance in a few selected countries – Pakistan, Indonesia, Colombia and Uganda – will be presented. The discussion hopes to elicit feedback and inputs on the methodology used, and also get the audience to share how eGovernance is being implemented in their country/ies.
A facilitator will introduce what the topic is all about, followed by a discussion of what an open eGovernance is, and the methodology used to measure it. Then there will be a sharing of country data on egovernance, to be followed by an open forum to be moderated by a Facilitator.
