E-Governance in European Cities Evaluated

1 Birmingham
2 Barcelona
3 Amsterdam
4 London
5 Glasgow
6 Edinburgh
7 Vienna
8 Dublin
9 Sheffield
10 Leeds

The recent ratings of city e-governance in Europe reflect a dominance by the UK. I was not surprized to see Leeds squeeze into the top-10 or see Barcelona near the top of the list. The entire list of 35 can be seen on the EU's website. Scandinavia was excluded from the survey. Otherwise, I would certainly expect to see Copenhagen on the list. It is interesting to note that the authors see Barcelona as something of an anomaly with characteristics more in common with "Anglo-Saxon" websites than is the case for other continental cities.
