Abstract: The paper provides an overview of e-government development within the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). Taking into consideration, the history and specifics of regional cooperation in terms of post-Soviet Union space, as well as best international practices of ICT innovations in regional blocks, the authors conducted research on the progress, challenges and prospects of e-government development in EEU member countries. The research methodology is based on the three stages of regionalism proposed by Van Langenhove and Costea (2005). From measuring the current e-government progress in contemporary EEU economic regionalism conditions, the authors moved to study the challenges that e-governments are faced with. The prospects of e-government that have created possibilities for foreign policies' integration and coherent development of inter-regional relations are also described. The research methodology combined qualitative and quantitative methods, which allowed a quick identification of a comparative progress in EEU countries using international sources and identifying challenges and prospects through an expert survey.
