In the last decade, a widespread debate has occurred as political theorists, public administration scientists, and organizational and information system researchers work to define E-government (EG) and E-governance. This current study addresses this issue and explores related literature to get an insight on the subtle relation between these two concepts. From a thorough literature and conceptual review of the philosophical underpinnings of both concepts, this study reveals that EG is, in general, a more citizen-focused and public-private version of government. On the other hand, E-governance can evolve into participatory governance if it is well supported by the appropriate principles, objectives, programs, and architectures steered by EG. This new paradigm of EG, which reflects the basic principles of E-governance, has emerged and been demanded through the evolution and application of modern information and communication technology (ICT) in the public administration system.
