Report by Metamorphosis Foundation for EDRI
Even though the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia and the Law on
Personal Data Protection (LPDP), the Criminal Code, Law on Organization and
Operation of State Administrative Bodies and other laws recognize and protect
the rights of privacy, data protection and secrecy of communications, the
implementation of these protections has met with major difficulties during 2008.

In order to analyze the current situation of eGovernment in Western
Balkan Countries (WBC) the authors used eGovernment benchmarks,
analyses of National Information Society (IS) Strategies and performed
a study on implementation level of eGovernment.
EU methodology developed by Capgemini to measure online sophistication
of basic public online services and percentage of fully available
online services was used to evaluate four WBC (Macedonia, Serbia,
Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina), comparing their progress in the
area of eGovernment services with the EU countries. The authors also
analyzed the respective National IS Strategies, especially those parts
which cover realization of eGovernment concepts. This study analyzes
the action plans level of implementation and also presents several
issues given by Stability Pact eSEE initiative.
By analyzing current situation the authors identify real essential
problems and provide guidelines for better implementation of
eGovernment services in WBC.
