ABSTRACT. This research makes conceptual and methodological contributions to the restrictions of e-government in its function as an anti-corruption instrument, ICT-enabled strategies as openness and anti-corruption instruments and the link among ICTs and macroeconomic variables in supplying more significant government openness and diminishing corruption. My analysis complements the growing literature on anti-corruption mechanisms of e-government, technology as a platform to enhance the dissemination of information and data from the government, the function of e-governance in corruption control and poverty decrease, and the capacity of ICT to cut down corruption. In this paper I am particularly interested in examining the association between ICT related e-government and corruption in developing economies, the link between the distribution of certain ICTs and decrease of corruption, the control of corruption through e-governance, and the Internet’s capacity for intensifying openness and cutting down corruption. pp. 66–72
