Access to public information in governmental agencies and archives – main challenges: an analysis of the Estonian, Icelandic and Swedish legal frameworks, with focus on main challenges for developing governmental e-services
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
The ongoing development of e-services gains much interest from many groups in the society, ranging from citizens and organizations to research communities. Initiatives are taken both from separate private persons to authorities themselves. Looking at the UN e-government survey 20101 we find Sweden (ranked 12) and Estonia (ranked 20) among the top20 in the e-government development index, and when it comes to the e-participation index only Estonia is found, this time ranked 9. Thus, Estonia2 has come furthest with involvement of citizens, while Sweden3 and Iceland4 is not as mature. Also the cultural heritage sector would benefit by being able to offer e-services that are developed from the citizen’s focus. Thus, the main questions are e.g.; what public information is of interest to citizens? And how would they like to access this information? What kind/s of service/s would they prefer? The APIS project set out to investigate what e-services could be developed, that increases the accessibility and use of public information that resides in governmental agencies and archives.
