To help facilitate growth of the e-government, the current regulatory reform measures need to be better understood at the theoretical and practical levels. Based on such a notion, this report analyzes laws and systems related to the current information policies as well as the initiative for building an e-government, from the viewpoints of efficiency, democracy, and stability, while presenting solutions for improving any associated issues.
In Chapter 2, meaning and significance of e-government, prerequisites for boosting the growth of e-government, its anticipated effects, and regulatory reform as well as regulatory reform are explained as a way to theoretically argue for promotion of e-government and necessity of regulatory reform. In Chapter 3, the current state of the e-government initiative in Korea as well as relevant laws and regulations are analyzed based on three factors such as efficiency, democracy, and stability. In Chapter 4, challenges involved with regulatory reform for promoting e-government are discussed based on the efficiency, democracy, and stability analyzed in the previous chapter. In Chapter 5, regulatory reform measures for promoting e-government are discussed based on the regulatory reform issues that are analyzed in the preceding chapter. Finally, in Chapter 6, findings from the research are summarized, and reform measures
for promoting the e-government of the participatory government are suggested with policy implications.
The analytical findings (efficiency, democracy, and stability) as well as the policy implications of this research can be summarized as follows: First, analysis at the level of realizing the ideal of establishing an 'efficient' e-government: A series of issues related to e-government regulations including expanding administrative networking and information sharing, integrating IT standardization and information resource management, and linking introduction of IT technologies with redesigning of operations as well as its conversion into networked organization, are presented with proposed reform solutions.
Second, analysis at the level of realizing the ideal of building a 'democratic' e-government: Issues related to e-government regulations including facilitating active electronic sharing of administrative information, promoting administrative services and online transactions, alleviating information gaps, establishing cooperative system between civil groups and government, and cooperating with autonomous local organizations, are presented with proposed reform solutions.
Third, analysis at the level of realizing the ideal of building a 'stable' e-government: Issues related to e-government regulations including protection of digital privacy as well as protection and security of information, continuous guarantee of resources for networking policies as well as e-government initiative, IT development as well as guarantee of human resources, and development of objective evaluation methods for associated policies, are presented with proposed reform solutions.
As policy implications of the report, it is concluded that the foremost thing to be done to facilitate active growth of the e-government is to improve the complicated legal system as well as the regulatory system of the e-government initiative. Such a conclusion implies that in order for the e-government
to evolve more in terms of quality rather than quantity in the future, legal and institutional changes are imperative. In addition, it means that with regulatory system more systemized, countless policy dilemmas that can arise while implementing networking policies and e-government initiative can be overcome ensuring seamless enforcement of related policies.
