Vision The Commonwealth Centre for e-Governance
The Commonwealth Centre for e-Governance (CCfEG) looks forward to a world in which traditional notions of government, government transactions and democracy are enhanced and/or reinvented through the deployment of electronic methods:
as a vision for the civil service, businesses and citizens working together for their mutual benefit, using information and communication technologies as a tool to achieve higher performance in service delivery, giving rise to the practical notions of electronic government (eGovernment) and government electronic business (eBusiness) ;
as a vision for social reform, involving a paradigm shift in the mind sets of the individual and the community; changes in organisations, systems and structures; and re-alignments in the modes of education and training, to mention a few, to capture the full benefits of the new information technologies, giving rise to the wider concept of electronic business (eBusiness);
as a vision for collective options of choice in the sharing of information & ideas and management of knowledge as part of citizen participation and empowerment in public life, giving rise to the practical notion of electronic democracy (eDemocracy).
