Governments' Technology Use to Fight Covid-19: A Preliminary Analysis



Government process capability model: An exploratory case study
Demirörs, Onur; Gökalp, Ebru (2014-01-01)
The customization of software process capability/maturity models to specific domains/sectors or development methodologies represents one of the most critical challenges of the process improvement domain. As a result of the literature review, it is observed that there is a lack of a guideline for how to improve process quality in governmental institutions. Therefore, in this study, development of a government process capability model based on ISO/IEC 15504 is aimed in order to ensure that processes are consi...
Government expenditures and economic growth in developing countries: Evidence from a panel data analysis
Günalp, Burak; Gür, Timur Han (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2002)
This paper re-estimates the two-sector growth model of Ram (1986), “Government Size and Economic Growth: A New Framework and Some Evidence from Cross-Section and Time-Series Data”, American Economic Review, 7(1), 191-203, by employing panel data techniques and using a more recent data set for thirtyfour developing countries. The estimation results confirm the cross-sectional findings of Ram: Government size is positively associated with the economic growth and economic performance of developing countries. T...

Buildings Subjected to Recurring Earthquakes: A Tale of Three Cities
Bayhan, Beyhan; Gulkan, Polat (SAGE Publications, 2011-08-01)
Three different buildings built according to the same design have experienced three different near-field strong ground motions over a period of 11 years in three different cities in Turkey. The input motion was known for each because strong-motion sensors were located adjacent or close to the buildings. We examine the performance of the five-story, reinforced concrete-frame buildings. Bidirectional nonlinear time history and nonlinear static analyses on 3-D analytical models are performed. The principal foc...
Governmentality and Crises of Representation, Knowledge, and Power in the Islamic Republic of Iran
Fozi, Navid (Wiley, 2015-01-01)
Since the contested presidential (re) election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2009, crises of representation, power, and knowledge have destabilized the Islamic Republic of Iran's governmentality notwithstanding a strong Weberian state. When many Iranians demanded a recount, the state rejected allegations of vote-rigging, purged Reformists from the state, cracked down on their supporters, elicited forced confessions, and staged show trials. This state-sponsored vigilantism that diminished the Republic's claim of...
