Digital Discourses

No state, no society, no business, and no individual is untouched by digital transformation. There are more and greater technological and social possibilities than ever before. Communication, education, knowledge production, markets, and work are undergoing deep changes in increasingly shorter cycles. At the same time, new technologies and the emergence of a new economic system evolving from this digital transformation are posing social, ethical and political challenges that need to be explored and negotiated.

While these “great upheavals” of our time are being discussed around the globe, the thematic focus of the discussions and the common viewpoints can vary significantly from society to society and from region to region. With this in mind, Goethe-Institut Indonesien, Center for Digital Society (CfDS), ELSAM, and ICT Watch are conducting a series of mini-conferences in 2019 and 2020 that is aiming to stir a debate about the impact digital transformation has on individuals as well as on economics, politics, society, and the ecology.
