This workshop will provide an overview of the 'eGovernment Barriers' project, which investigates the legal, organisational, technological and other barriers to expanding effective e-Government services using the Internet.

The workshop will provide an overview of the Breaking Barriers to e-Government project. Panellists will introduce key issues that can constrain eGovernment growth, and outline the research designed to address them. We will solicit feedback from the audience on our choices, and on good cases that might address each barrier.
