The digital transformation and inequality: technology, institutions and the redistribution of agency. Counterpoint and OSEPI convened a workshop in Berlin with a select group of policymakers from across Europe to consider and debate the ways in which the digital transformation is shaping and fuelling inequality in our societies. We examined what the psychological and sociological aspects of the digital transformation could look like in future, and how these would change human beings, as citizens and members of a society in a democratic political framework. Our workshop ended with a fascinating exploration of how public institutions and governments will need to change in order to meet these expectations and the many resulting challenges brought about by the digital revolution.
