About this Event

Excerpt From the Booklet

There is another story about to be written about digitalization in Denmark. A different story than the one that is being written as we write this introduction, which tells about digitalization’s potentials. This story has been written already for many years, and it keeps things open and in process. There is power in seeing potentialities rather than consequences, and digitalization is often about that which is just about to happen. Mostly good things. The other story is about the things that have already happened.

We named our research project ‘Welfare After Digitalization’ to counter the emphasis on process and potentialities. The research we have conducted is about the things that have already happened. In the past tense. Our research is about the changes, big and small, that have followed in the wake of digitalization. Changes on public education, the health care system, the energy infrastructures, the labour market, and in law enforcement. With this conference publication we invite you into a collective reflection on the digitalization efforts that have already taken place. We invite you to help take stock.

After digitalization. What does that even mean? As if there were ‘before’ and ‘after’ of something so all-encompassing. Digitalization seems to be everywhere; what if we wrote the story of digitalization as something that happened, like Charybdis, the daughter of Poseidon that flooded large amounts of the Earth to expand her father’s kingdom and return it to him. What if digitalization flooded the aged body of the Western welfare state and returned it in a transformed shape. What characterizes this state in which we live?
