PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION IN CYBERSPACE
Languages of publication
The turn of the twenty-fi rst century is the time of a global revolution consisting in an avalanche of modern technologies. The achievements of science and technology are used in every fi eld of human existence. The basis of functioning of modern society is the use of cyberspace. Access to mobile phones, computers and the global ICT network is a determinant of societal development. The idea of universal automation and computerisation is a fact. The possibility of using high-speed ICT connections is not only the domain of scientifi c institutions, military agents and large business entities. A global computer network connects individuals. The intensive development of modern technologies, the Internet and telecommunication networks has enabled the emergence of a new approach in communication between citizens and the state (with central and local government offi ces). It has also enabled the introduction of new solutions, models and services at this level, resulting directly from specifi c social needs and expectations. According to the assumptions of the idea of e-government, the basic premise for creating e-government is to improve contact with the authorities at all levels, and to speed up procedures for dealing with offi cial matters. Investing in modern administration may bring tangible benefi ts to citizens and entrepreneurs as well as to the administration itself.
