Abstract [en]

This paper proposes a framework for an effective e-Participation model that can be suitable under certainsocio-economic settings and applicable to any country.Most of such previous initiatives were experimental innature and lacked in both public awareness and clearlydefined expected outcomes.A great majority of the existing frameworks areinadequate to address their universal applicability incountries with certain socio-economic and technologicalsettings. Though there is so far no “one size fits all”strategy in implementing eGovernment, there are someessential common elements in the transformation.Therefore, this paper attempts to develop a singularsustainable model based on some theories and thelessons learned from existing e-Participation initiatives ofdeveloping and developed countries, so that the benefitsof ICT can be maximized and greater participation beensured.The model is initially presumed to be sustainable since itis designed to fit under any socio-economic conditionsof a country and can be initiated both by public (state)and private agencies. The study also reviews currentresearch on e-Participation and assesses existingendeavours and challenges for the countries.
