Executive Summary

This study examines while each country has proceeded E-government, how E-government influences on corruption control by using national level panel data. After analyzing the result, both E-government development index and E-participation index showed positive effects on corruption control. However, the comparison analysis of OECD and non-OECD countries on corruption control through E-government shows that it has a great impact on not OECD countries but only non-OECD countries.

This results show that the various goals pursued by E-government have a positive effect on corruption control. However, this research presents that the influence of E-government corruption control on OECD countries, which have already well-developed in all fields, is little. Therefore, the results of this study suggest that corruption control can be made more efficient through the activation of E-government in non-OECD countries where the development level of the country is relatively low compared to the OECD countries.
