eGovernment. Effective, Accountable and Open Public Administration in the European Union

Date: 12.05.2021 - 13.05.2021
Organiser: JU Chair in European Law, Institute of Law and Economics of the Pedagogical University of Cracow
eGovernment. Effective, Accountable and Open Public Administration in the European Union

The aim of the Conference is to analyse the implementation and functioning of eGovernment in Poland and Europe, with particular emphasis on the impact of digitalisation on openness, accountability, rationality and efficiency of public administration.

The process of transformation of administration under the influence of information and communication technologies brings not only benefits but also risks. The conference is devoted to both aspects. The planned subject of discussion is the analysis and evaluation of legal, social, political and economic bases of eGovernment and conditions of its development. As the Polish public administration functions in the European administrative space, the academic reflection on the eGovernment issues in the EU and other European countries, including the countries of Eastern Partnership and Western Balkans, is also required. The issue of using electronic tools within the framework of cooperation between national and European administration will also be discussed.

The conference has an interdisciplinary character including such fields as: law, economics, science of administration, management, history of administrative law and administration. The eGovernment will be analysed in terms of: current changes and trends in Polish and European administrative law, organization and management in public administration, the concepts, priorities and activities of the public authorities, relations between representatives of public administration and citizens, as well as historical and socio-political conditions of changes in public administration resulting from its digitalisation.
