To strengthen the arguments on the effects of risk aversion and uncertainty avoidance on trust in the adoption intention of egovernment, a research model grounded in trust, perceived risk and uncertainty, risk aversion and uncertainty avoidance framework is proposed based on a review of an extensive literature.
