Centre for Digital Governance

Under the direction of Gerhard Hammerschmid, the Centre conducts research on digitalisation (and artificial intelligence) in government as well as the effects of digitalisation in authoritarian regimes, regulation of platform economies and digital capacities. It combines:

  • A public policy/governance perspective with issues such as government-business relations, regulation and ethical implications of digitalisation
  • A public management/administration perspective with a focus on transforming government (policy, service delivery) through digitalisation.

The Centre for Digital Governance cooperates closely with the School’s Data Science Lab directed by Slava Jankin.
