Abstract and Keywords

The article has three main parts. The first looks briefly at how successive waves of administrative and organizational theory have downplayed the role of administrative technologies and technological change affecting government organizations. Next it looks at the key issues in post-1995 ‘e-government’ debates and processes, briefly surveying the still little-researched changes of government arrangements brought in around web-based ICTs in advanced industrial countries. The third section sketches an emergent ideal type of ‘digital era governance’ focusing on the reintegration of government sector processes, a new effort at holism and a range of connected ‘digitalization’ changes in the organization of government information.

Keywords: governance, state organization, administrative technologies, e-government, digitization, government information
