In recent years, many governments have worked to increase openness and transparency in their actions. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are seen by many as a cost-effective and convenient means to promote openness and transparency and to reduce corruption. A well-planned e-government strategy can build a more efficient, accountable and transparent government. This review paper first illustrates the advantages of e-government services; discusses examples of e-government where corruption was significantly reduced; and draws lessons on leadership and managerial issues in deploying information and communication technology (ICT) to combat corruption. In addition, the paper discusses the e-government as an anti-corruption strategy in India. This paper explores the potential impacts of information and ICTs especially e-government and social media on cultural attitudes about transparency.
