Challengers to traditional E-Government (non-governmental actors)

ByPAUL G. NIXON, ANTJE GREBNER, LAURA SUDULICH

As the Internet started becoming more and more of a mass medium, its political implications emerged, and they have been debated ever since. Therefore, it is impossible to ignore both the new forms of interaction facilitated in cyberspace and the threats and opportunities that these offer to existing NGOs. This study assesses whether the availability of E-Government tools has changed interactions between governmental and non-governmental agencies. To do so, we propose an analysis based on NGOs typology, which provides us with a clear set of expected patterns for the future.
