Frame of Image creasing, knowledge sharing among the countries in the Asia-Pacific region on this subject is not sufficient. For example, although policymakers in developing countries recognize the need for ICTD policy and programmes, they tend to fail in the development of institutional capacity that is appropriate for their political environment and policy context. What is really needed, therefore, is not merely formal or theoretical knowledge, but useful knowledge that combines comparative studies on relevant countries and in-depth analysis of success stories. This is what is meant by knowledge sharing in this series. This publication introduces various institutional arrangements for ICTD in different countries, and then examines in detail the case of the Republic of Korea. It discusses the Korean government’s policies and strategies for ICTD and how changes in the institutional arrangements for ICTD and also for e-government have helped to achieve development goals. Institution building generally refers to the conscious efforts of policymakers in designing organizational structure and rules to direct societal changes by adapting existing institutional arrangements to new circumstances or by developing new institutions to create new opportunities.

Abstract

Part I is on ICT for Development Institution Building, composed of five chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the publication, explains the importance of institution building in ICTD policymaking and programme development, and defines key concepts. Further, it suggests a framework for the policy process that comprises the environment, institutions, policy contents, and policy instruments. Chapter 2 suggests models of ICTD institutions for policy planning, coordination and implementation at supra-ministerial and ministerial levels, and provides a comparative analysis of the different models of ICTD institutions used in various countries. Chapter 3 examines institutional arrangements for ICTD in the Republic of Korea. It deals in detail with the organizational structure and functions of the MIC and IPC, and discusses policy instruments that were used to strengthen and support their functions. Chapter 4 presents the institutional arrangements for e-government in the Republic of Korea. It focuses on the role of the PEGSC that was established to drive cross-agency and government-wide e-government projects under the strong leadership and commitment of the President. Various institutional resources that were used for building e-government such as budgets, legal frameworks and support agencies are examined. Chapter 5 concludes the publication and makes a set of recommendations for ICTD institution building in developing countries based on the MIC case, which is considered as one of the best practices in institution building for ICTD.
