MetadataShow full item record
This given thesis examines the circumstances around the introduction of the e-Governance in Georgia. It argues that after the Rose Revolution, the incumbent regime was extremely well-positioned to reform the very fabric of the society and the state itself. However, on the path of the democratization the Information and Communication Technologies were used in a limited way. Furthermore, the characteristics of the regime paired with the internal and external issues posed serious threat to the success of the e-Governance in the first place. The lack of any prior experience in this field, also played a major role in the failure of the new regime. And finally, it is argued that during the rule of the new government a perfect chance at employing the technologies for the benefit of the many was missed.
