Digital Politics

To fully benefit from the opportunities of digitalisation in private, professional and political activities, we need a new understanding, new guidelines and digital politics. Affecting so many areas of life, digital transformation poses particular challenges for politics that have to be addressed across both subject and departmental boundaries.

Prospects for digital policy – experiences and current challenges

Who is driving digital transformation in Germany? Moving forward, how can we improve? In cooperation with acatech (German Academy of Science and Engineering), the bidt invited participants to join a discussion on these and other questions to identify perspectives for the future of digital policy.

33 000


33,000 –the number of new mobile phone sites built in Germany over the last ten years. Connectivity and, thus, internet availability has, for a long time, shown large regional discrepancies. The uneven provision of digital infrastructure, especially in sparsely populated areas, made digital participation difficult in certain regions. The nationwide availability of high-performance internet, a declared goal of politics, is just as important as the expansion of mobile phone sites.

Digital policy

Digital politics describes a still emergent policy field, which resulted from institutions concentrating all socio-political questions and political tasks related to advancing digitalisation into one policy field. The comprehensive nature of digital transformation presents a challenge because of the wide range of topics that digital policy touches.
