This paper opens with a review of e-government and its implications in Central, South, East, and Southeast Asia. Second, it turns to the digital divide in Asia, a major obstacle to e-government implementation. Third, it utilizes two measures of e-government compiled by the United Nations: the e-government readiness and e-participation scores, to provide an overview of how e-government implementation varies among the region’s countries.

It concludes by emphasizing that there is no standard model that can be used to understand the phenomenon; rather e-government must be understood contextually and in a geographically specific manner
