Gender and E-Government in collaboration with the E-Government Thematic Group

June 18, 2002

This session discussed several cases of e-government practices from civil society and government perspective. The session addressed major gender concerns in developing countries as they digitalize their governments.

A case study in this session presented the implementation success factors of an open public information system that deals with transparencies in public management of three local governments of Peru. A female mayor played a key role in the implementation of this “public window” project.

This session also reviewed the use of web-based applications in Central American governments from the perspective of local realities and marginalized groups. Cases of other regions were also examined.
