Front Cover
T.M.C. Asser Press, May 21, 2002 - Law - 228 pages
Many countries recognise the potential of digital aids in providing information and services to citizens, organisations and companies. Recent developments have put pressure on the legislature to provide an adequate legal framework for electronic administrative communication. Thus, various countries have started to draft provisions in their administrative law in order to remove legal impediments that hamper electronic services from public administrations. This volume provides an overview and analysis of such legislative developments in France, Germany, Norway and the United States. What approach has been taken in these countries? What specific provisions have been formulated to facilitate electronic administrative communication and at what level? This book provides an in-depth analysis of the legislative projects in the various countries, and an insight into the differences in policy making, as well as the lessons that can be learned for future regulatory projects to amend administrative law for the digital era.
