During this webinar, you will learn how the Baltic states developed the legislative framework for electronic governance (e-governance) and became world leaders in adopting information and communication technologies in governance. The webinar will showcase the efforts of various Baltic governments to create digital infrastructures for e-governance and regulations for managing the digital ecosystems. The webinar will discuss the strategies and mechanisms employed by Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia to ensure the inclusiveness of the population in this process and address the problem of the “digital gap” to increase efficiency, transparency, and accessibility to digital government. Furthermore, the webinar will point to practical examples of e-governance such as e-health, e-tax, and e-business, as well as the usage of artificial intelligence, such as AI-powered chat-bots in public service, for impaired people. In addition, the presenter will explain the differences between e-voting and internet voting (i-voting) and focus on the specifics of e-voting in Estonia. Finally, the webinar will offer a comparative analysis of the Baltic States’ experience and progress in e-governance and e-voting on the regional and global level by highlighting relevant statistics and data.

This webinar will be presented by Iana Fremer. She has been a legal research analyst at the Law Library of Congress since 2020. She holds a master’s degree in journalism and media management from the Caucasus School of Journalism and Media Management and a master’s degree in Russian language and literature from Tbilisi State University.
