Reporters sans frontières révèle le Classement de la liberté de la presse 2014 | African Governance Assessment Platform | Scoop.it

Le Classement mondial de la liberté de la presse 2014 publié par Reporters sans frontières révèle une dégradation importante de la situation dans des pays aussi divers que les États-Unis, la République centrafricaine et le Guatemala, et à l’inverse des améliorations sensibles en Equateur, en Bolivie et en Afrique du Sud. Si la Finlande, les Pays-Bas et la Norvège constituent une fois encore le trio de tête, le Turkménistan, la Corée du Nord et l’Érythrée demeurent les pires trous noirs de l’information.

Survey to investigate implementation of e-government ICT infrastructure in developed and developing countries

AFRIGAP's insight:

The presented questionnaire is part of PhD research titled “Framework for e-government systems design for developing countries”. The research aims at investigating e-government developments, solutions and applications in developed and developing countries and thus determining how developing countries can leverage from the more successful e-government endeavours in developed countries.

 

I kindly request your participation in filling the questionnaire.  The purpose of the questionnaire is to collect information and gain insights on implementation of e-government ICT infrastructure in developed and developing countries. Hence enabling learning and transfer of knowledge among developed and developing countries in e-government systems design. The required time for filling the questionnaire is approximately 30 minutes.

What Are the Limits of Transparency?

What Are the Limits of Transparency? | African Governance Assessment Platform | Scoop.it

Transparency has become a popular concept in management circles in recent years, no matter how little enthusiasm you may have for the word itself. Now the topic has been thrust into our everyday lives with disclosures, or leaks, of alleged US secret intelligence information by Edward Snowdon. Increasingly, we are asking ourselves "How much transparency is the right amount?"Transparency is given credit for fostering trust among members of an organization, building loyalty among employees, and generally creating better places to work. For many years we observed need-to-know policies (that may have had their origins in the military) among managers of leading organizations. This slowly evolved in some organizations into policies that gave employees much more information about the activities of the enterprise and more voice in determining what they felt they needed to know.

Parliamentary Centre Launches Round Two of African Parliamentary Index in Uganda | African Governance Assessment Platform | Scoop.it

On August 16th, the summary report of the second round of the African Parliamentary Index (API) was officially launched in Uganda by the Deputy Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament, Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanyah.  During his speech, he stressed that the API assessment process had been important in helping his Parliament shed light on where it has come from, where it is now, and more importantly, where they want to go. “We need to know where we are going so we can design mechanisms to determine how to get there. The Index is one of the mechanisms to achieve that goal”, he stated, underlining that the API process has the potential to assist the institutional growth of parliaments through self-assessment and internal awakening.
