Global E-Governance Survey 2007

If you are interested in the global aspects of e-governance and you're fluent in a language other than English, this is a great opportunity for you to contribute to the 2007 E-Governance Survey. Details for how to become involved are below:

Dear All,

The E-Governance Institute at Rutgers University-Newark is conducting its Third Global E-Governance Survey 2007 in collaboration with the SungKyunKwan University, South Korea. The Survey evaluates websites of municipalities worldwide and compares their rankings on a global e-governance scale. We are seeking to recruit volunteers who read the following languages and who would be willing to evaluate one or more city websites worldwide.

Spanish, French, Arabic, Japanese, Hebrew, Portuguese, Croatian, Greek, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Hungarian, Latvian, Moldovan, Norwegian, Polish, Serbian, Slovakian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish.

Surveyors will have the opportunity to learn about e-governance and related issues such as e-democracy, e-voting, e-bulletin boards, website usability and online citizen participation. Each evaluation can be done within two to three hours and surveyors will be credited in the published results.

If you are interested in volunteering for the survey, please email Aroon Manoharan at and he will send you further details. Please forward this message to your friends and colleagues.
