In his book ‘McWorld vs. Jihad’, Barber (1995) reflects upon a ‘McWorld tied together by communication, information, entertainment and commerce’ vs. ‘Jihad…against technology, against pop culture and against integrated markets, against modernity itself’ (1995, p. 40). The United Nations provides a benign image to the much criticised globalisation by suggesting that ICTs could be harnessed to achieve global peace and development (United Nations 1998). Globalisation arrived over the wings of the internet and the cage of the transnational companies.
The objective is to explain and clarify the relationship between e-governance and larger institutional reforms to strengthen governance and then to explore those manifold strategies which make them complementary and supplementary to each other. This presumptive relationship between the ‘e’ and ‘governance’ is also expected to highlight many of those missing links in implementation which retard performance and prevent the achievement of any of developmental goals. The rapid strides towards e-governance take a visible turn with the beginning of the year 2000.
Population explosion combined with increasing democratisation of countries in the Asia Pacific led to a pressure of demands and expectations. The decade of 1960s has been a period of severe economic downturn for the whole of Asia Pacific, and United Nation’s continuous failure to turn the declared development decades into success stories indicated institutional failures. Thus, the primary contention of this work is to treat institutional failure as a raison d’être of e-governance. 19 The ‘e’ by its very nature is endowed with the freedom of ‘unbelongingness’ or to be with none and everyone, yet exclusive and unbridled.
