Example text

The placing of responsibility (and intellectual property rights [IPR] where relevant) could be critical, especially in relation to users who, by way of their status or situation, may not be able to exercise their own responsibility, such as children, the elderly, the handicapped, and so forth. This will also allow users to become involved, to be better informed, and to be better able to exercise some control for their own benefit. As noted by the European Transparency Initiative (2005), transparency is often the basis for trust.

Digitization encourages transparency, openness, and participation, and provides tools for users to get involved in designing and consuming services more appropriate to their individual needs. For example, a 2010 survey from TechAmerica, an information technology (IT) trade association, shows how federal agencies and departments in the United States have increased efforts to publish data sets and utilize social media tools as part of the Obama Administration’s push for transparency, yet continue to struggle with cybersecurity, IT infrastructure, and workforce issues.

Without trust in the public sector, online government will fail. It is a truism that trust is difficult to grow and easy to degrade, so it is imperative to find ways to reverse this trend. Trust and mistrust go hand-in-hand and need to be balanced. Trust reduces transaction costs, but a healthy mistrust encourages constructive criticism and debate. The trick is to know the difference. Governments can assist in this by maximizing transparency and openness so citizens can see how decisions are made, who takes them, and why.
