The conference is aimed to stimulate and initiate a scholarly debate involving academics and practitioners on the question whether information and communication technologies make European and domestic administrations more citizen-oriented?
Special attention will be directed towards e-government as a basis for direct and indirect improvement in the quality of people's lives. The aim of the Jean Monnet Module conference is to establish the impact of new technological channels of interaction between administration and citizens, on the organisational structure and dynamics of public administration and on the delivery of public services.
As the Polish public administration functions in the European administrative space, academic reflection on the eGovernment issues in the EU and other European countries, including the countries of the Eastern Partnership and the 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 as well as science of administration and management. 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; historical and socio-political conditions of changes in public administration resulting from its digitalisation.
