Published Date: 20 February 2008

This book describes the next phase of e-government transformation, what Cisco call the Connected Republic. This vision puts people and communities at the centre of new networks of knowledge, service, trust, and accountability. The approach helps define the role of government, explains how to modernize the public sector, and shows how to strengthen democracy. The Connected Republic is a far-reaching and difficult goal. It is achievable through understanding and making use of the transformation potential of interactive and networked information. This transformation affects the people who work with and for governments, as well as the people for whom governments exist.
