This research study clearly explains the application of G2G e-government within nontraditional
governance. This research was aimed at developing a framework that
identified the key factors that affect the implementation of G2G e-government within
non traditional governance using Libya as a case study.
Libya is an Arab country in North Africa and similar to other Arab countries in many
ways with respect to the location, language, religion, customs, values, culture, and
history. But Libya is completely different in its political and economic system. Libya
is a unique model of democracy, using a system of direct democracy, which depends
on the power of the people through the People's Congresses as an instrument of
legislation. Libya has a public society, also there is no a Prime Minister in Libya and
no any municipalities but its governance is based on People's Congresses and these
committees decide what legislation to be implemented.
In order to achieve the research aim, four objectives have been accomplished. By
reviewing the relevant literature the theoretical framework was enhanced. Then the
empirical work was carried out by collecting the data required for the research in three
Libyan public sectors namely the General Public Committee (Cabinet of Libya), the
General Public Committee for Planning (The Ministry of Planning) and the General
Information Authority. After collecting the data it was analysed qualitatively to
identify and explore the key factors affecting e-government in the selected cases. The
findings of the research have been discussed, using many tools for triangulation, to
understand the implementation of e-government in the three cases, and to find the
factors affecting e-government within non-traditional governance, the initial
theoretical framework is revised accordingly to reflect the case studies' findings.
This study is the first one that has identified both the factors and factors affecting egovernment
within the Libyan public sector. The significance of this research is that
lessons have been learned as well as solutions on how to apply e-government in a
country with non-traditional governance.
