The last two years have seen the growing interest in e‐commerce and e‐government in Lebanon. Through a review of literature and related studies, critical factors in peoples’ attitude toward participation in e‐government are uncovered. Empirical evidence indicates that Lebanese people are provided today with automated systems but they lack awareness of e‐government. The cognitive dimension “awareness” is significantly related to the conative dimension “intention to use e‐government” while the affective dimension “feelings” is less significant. The findings of the study reaffirm the importance of investigating future variables.
