Public E-services in Sweden: Old Wine in New Bottles?

Ilshammar, Lars LU ; Bjurström, Anna and Grönlund, Åke (2005) In Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems 17(2). p.11-40
Abstract
This paper describes and analyses the political discourse regarding

e-government (including terms earlier used) in Sweden in the period from the 1960s until today, drawing on a review of policy documents. It is found that even though both the meanings ascribed to computers, the political visions,and the main arguments have changed considerably over time, the majorplans for action have always remained the same. While goals related to democracy, increased service level, and decentralisation have at different times been at the focus of the debate, increased internal efficiency has always been the target for actions.
