    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Self-regulation emerges as very important form for regulating different aspects of the electronic domain, and is advocated by current regulatory initiatives. Equally, the special laws and regulations are created to address e-govemance issues. The paper suggests and analyses the possibilities of transferring elements of self-regulation model to the broader domain. The limitations of such transfer, as well as disadvantages thereof, which interestingly have many similarities, are analyzed, along with the practicality of applying self-regulation successfulness tests to measure governmental regulation of e-governance. In order to support the theoretical arguments, the empirical analysis of the ISP self-regulation in the Baltic's on the issues of Internet content is made. Conclusions are drawn on the necessity for co-existence of governmental regulation and self-regulation, in order to facilitate the overall success of the e-governance legal framework.
