FERNANDES, Osíris Luís da Cunha; PAIVA JUNIOR, Fernando Gomes de; FERNANDES, Nelson da Cruz Monteiro  e  COSTA, Marconi Freitas da. The phantasmatic logic of e-government and the discourse of innovation in Cape Verde. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2020, vol.54, n.2, pp.266-284.  Epub 15-Maio-2020.

This study aims to deepen the reflections on E-government (E-gov) from an analysis of the discursive field of innovation in the public sector in Cape Verde from the point of view of Laclau and Mouffe’s Discourse Theory. An instrumental case study was conducted using the reproduction method proposed by Glynos and Howarth and discourse analysis (French matrix). The aim was to unveil the phantasmatic logic of the discursive articulation of this social practice of the subjects that constituted the E-gov. The results show that although E-gov is an incomplete, vulnerable, and contingent entity, the identity of the agents involved in its discursive articulation depends on its capacity to reiterate the discourses of ‘the information society,’ ‘E-government as a strategic option for development,’ and ‘state reform and administrative modernization’ over time. However, E-gov has revealed itself as a discursive system impregnated with demands related to an occasional technicality and to the implicit belief of agents of the Cape Verdean public sector that the use of ICT by public institutions generates structuring advances in administrative modernization and social transformation.
