Does e-government increase trust in government?

A study from South Korea shows that investment in e-government may not be paying off when it comes to people\'s involvement and trust in government. DorobekINSI...

You’ve spent a lot of time on e-government, but are people actually getting involved and trusting government more?

Maybe not. That’s the conclusion of one study from South Korea, where the government has been a leader in e-government development.

Despite the Korean government’s rapid online presence, “a limited number” of citizens are actually using government websites, according to the report.

Two of the report’s authors — Tobin Im, a professor at Seoul National University, and Greg Porumbescu, a student of Professor Im’s — joined DorobekINSIDER to discuss their findings.
