Towards general equality in digital welfare

Dr Ansgar Koene, Senior Research Fellow at Horizon Digital Economy Research was invited by the Digital Future Society as an Expert Contributor to a newly published report Towards general equality in digital welfare.

Digital Future Society is a non-profit transnational initiative that engages policymakers, civic society organisations, academic experts and entrepreneurs from around the world to explore, experiment and explain how technologies can be designed, used and governed in ways that create the conditions for a more inclusive and equitable society.

This report is a primer for policymakers seeking to exploit technology’s potential in welfare while promoting gender equality. It aims to support them identify, understand and prioritise key challenges and opportunities both now and in the future, in areas of public innovation, digital trust and equitable growth.
