Our Digital Future

  • CC by Zsoolt at flickr 2014

The Digital Revolution is permeating our daily lives on many levels and the velocity of change is likely to become even higher in the coming years. The undoubtedly great opportunities that this change brings is, however, matched by the political challenges it poses. In the emerging Digital Society, many regulatory frameworks are fast becoming outdated, new mechanisms to shape the transition are missing and new collective action problems arise as digitisation often goes along with the de-territorialisation.

The public policy community has only started to ponder the political implications of the digital transition. FES London and the wider FES network in Germany and across the world are organizing a series of events and publication to discuss the key challenges of our Digital Future.
