The following article is based on a Paper I wrote in 2007:
Title: “Toward an informational approach to pre-implementation and post-evaluation of e-participation projects for Africa”
Abstract: In developing countries the majority of e-participation and in general e-governance projects fail. After an introduction to the use of Heek’s (2003) “archetype of failure”, I will explain the African media landscape. After that I will try to explain an demonstrate how, what I call “an informational approach to pre-implementation and post-evaluation”, can be used to develop new criteria and methods. All this to avoid those failures and provide at the end of the projects ROI (return of investment) data for all the stakeholders and especially for the donors who are investing in e-participation projects in African countries.
