ABSTRACT

Most studies exploring the relationship between e-government development and good governance have concluded that e-government has largely positive effects on various aspects of governance. However, an important criticism of the current literature on e-government is that the relationship often lacks a theoretical foundation. In this study, we propose a conceptual framework for the relationship between e-government and good governance, based on the conjecture that while there is a link between the two, conditions must be ripe for e-government to be effective in enhancing good governance. We propose a framework where the relationship between e-government and good governance is both direct and indirect, moderated by social conditions. As an exploratory effort, we test this model in the context of Small Island Developing States and find that the effects of e-government on governance are moderated by other social conditions such as social openness and the rule of law to influence governance. These results are encouraging as we attempt to understand the mechanisms by which e-government can play a role in enhancing good governance.
