beta Discussing the Digital Government Declaration

[...] To be fair, European countries have progressed strongly on e-government. They are providing more online services, not by simply substituting paper processes with online forms but by driving deep changes in both front office and back office. New fundamental legislation such as eIDas Regulation, PSI Directive and the New Interoperability Framework provide the legal framework for the cross-border recognition of eID, for open data and for interoperability, respectively. A set of dynamic, composable building blocks are in place for delivering cross-border services: eInvoicing, eDelivery, eSignature, eID, and eTranslation.
Maybe while still on the theme of trust, you could mention the vision set out in the next generation internet initiative ""The internet should be a place for citizens to create and contribute to global society, not merely consume and 'like' content. Citizens should have agency, not 'be the product." See

I'm not sure that the "deep changes in... back office" have really materialised in government in all countries?

The concept of Mobile ID is quickly gaining traction (in Sweden it has eclipsed all other variants), but the systems are entirely proprietary and suffer from severe security flaws which requires a more concerted action to fix because it need involvement by the platform vendors as well.

I believe you shouldn't only focus on "online services" newly implemented by member states (most of them being a bit 20th century based process turned digital). I believe you might usefully insist on the various tentatives of investing in the digital relation maanegment (using social medias, MyGov accounts, ...). These are more visible to citizens than the e-Services themselves.

This is too technocratic. We don't believe that more online services will bring solutions to the lack of trust. The solution which needs to be found is how to increase trust in (existing) online services. This can be achieved by promoting transparency in regard to the processing of personal data and by giving individuals control over their personal data.

For those ambitious scopes you must avoid vendor lock-in. Using free software you reach really digital open governmet. This is the right backgrond.
